You can't call your album that dudes! I mean Houses of the Holy might have a weird guitar sound on a load of it and the pre-Presence low point of 'D'yer Mak'er' but it's still pretty bangin' on the whole and you shouldn't be taking that shit away from them. People might knock 'The Crunge' n'all but it pretty much invented A Certain Ratio in a weird sort of way y'know? Anyway, cheekiness aside this couldn't really sound much more different from t'Zep, being all shambly and lo-fi and shit. I'm guessing there are loads of people out there who'll be fully scoffing at my ignorance here as apparently these lads have been around since the eighties and yet they're a completely new name to me.. I'm liking the way their sound sort of skirts around both jangle pop and post-punk territory without ever quite fully committing to either, maybe in a little bit of a Go-Betweens style. I'm getting Lou Barlow vibes from the fella's voice too which is as comforting to me as the overall sound in general. I might have to check out some of their back catalogue..
