Glasgow mentalists Divorce have been doing the rounds for a bit now, teasing us with all manner of juicy singles full of scratchy, unhinged psychopunk clatterings, but only now have they finally got round to dropping a full album of their anarchic disc-sander-to-the-face rantings. It’s fair to say that all of us here at Norman are pleased at this development.

Over the course of this LP they churn out nine bilious, stumbling chunks of steaming raw sass-noise like the bastard offspring of Arab On Radar, Gay Beast, Meth & Goats, Burmese and Agatha...in ‘Stabby (Stabby) Stab’ they’re even joined by some screeching Gustafsson-meets-Funhouse-esque sax honk insanity over a motorik two-note fuzz riff like a panic siren in the background. The vocals have a demented almost childlike tone to them...is it bad that they sometimes sound a bit like the girl in The Exorcist when she’s possessed? I don’t think so. Sometimes she also sounds the way cats sound when they’re really, really angry.

In fact the more I get through this record the more its confrontational noise attack is reminding me of Leeds’s own banshee-screeching noise contemporaries Etai Keshiki, the rage and contempt undisguised as they rail through their pummelling two-note noise grooves. A genuinely raw and exciting long-player.
