As soon as I put the needle down on this one my first thought was “sounds like Skullflower”. It came as no surprise, therefore, for me to drift over to its press release and disover that - lo and behold - it’s Skullflower. Or at least it’s a duo of Matthew Bower and Samantha Davies so, like, Skullflower & friend, basically, doling out some horrible oppressive New Blockaders-with-guitars style noise terrorism.
What’s happening is that a guitar is farting out a load of feedback and distortion and these two aren’t even doing anything to stop it. In fact they’re encouraging it if anything. There’s no real riffs or tunes to speak of, it’s very much in the pure noise style. The first song has two guitars churning away horribly alongside one another, and in the second we are introduced to the sound of an irritating piano along with loads of creaking, groaning feedbacky dirge.
Flip it and there’s one with loads of shrieking feedback that’ll really annoy your neighbours, and then more crunching and grumbling on the final track. A dancefloor-emptying, pants-dirtying experience throughout.
