Got a new 7” here from those fine purveyors of the UK DIY indie-rock underground at Art For Blind. This one’s from Dublin power-popsters The #1s, who feature among their ranks members of The Pacifics, Crowd Control, Loose Nut and The Spungos. As for the music, it’s a double-header of proper ‘90s style fuzzy earnest pop-rock with lots of tuneful hollering and nice jangly grooves.
The simple, gleeful obviousness of it is reminding me a little of early Weezer, but it’s more rough around the edges; maybe think Marked Men or the Young Offenders playing Weezer songs. Yeah, that sounds good, doesn’t it? The sleeve has a photo of the band drinking and looking a little awkward which is so entertaining they use it on both sides. If you’re into jangly, hard-hitting rock music with big catchy tunes then this comes highly recommended. Comes with a neat fold-out poster with lyrics and a photo collage.
