As The Cure almost sang 'Thursday I'm in Love', I've made the correct Danish Pastry decision, it appears to be August outside and I've been dragged from my warm bed half way across Yorkshire to tell you about various phonograph records. This 'Wounded Lion' thing is an odd one - it starts off pretty interesting as if they had emerged from the same grim industrial backwater as Pere Ubu and Rocket From the Tombs. There's a bit of David Thomas's strangulated squeak in the vocals and the guitars chug along effectively. Opener 'Monkeys' recalls Arcwelder heading down a kraut rock cul-de-sac and there's a certain mid western growl in their sound despite them coming from the sunnier climes of Los Angeles. But as the album wears on, it becomes less listenable and more like some kind of sludgy punk - at times like Half Man Half Biscuit without the humour at others like Jonathan Richman but often like a beery Stooges influenced bar band.
