9/10 Dave 30 September 2010

The first full lenghther from DPU is a hook ridden, uptempo rock beast that would sit nicely on most grungers shelves. It's cut from the same plaid material as other grunge rock acts, but with a more pop sensibility. Its a pretty consistent record with huge pounding drums and buzzsaw riffery. A dynamic and wholesome sounding record. I feel this feller owes a great debt to Bob Mould type songsmithery. It has some great tunes and the playing (all the instruments are capably played by the grunge master general Matt) and he really nails the whole thing. My favourite tracks are the single "Mona Lisa" which is power pop at its most erm..powerful and track 7 and 8 which are sweet fucking cuts of memorable grunge action..I cant recall the names but I am bonced out on life pipes. This is a veritable banquet of rock food, served up with a soupcan of tuneful sing along choruses. A hearty concoction...
