9/10 Mike Staff review, 20 December 2012
This is one of those proper old-skool DIY releases where you open the sleeve and all manner of gubbins fall out. There’s a 7” with two songs, a CD with those two and another one, a download code with those three and some bonus live stuff, and a separate picture of the band with their arms folded wearing pink balaclavas, Pussy Riot-style.
I’m listening to the CD so I’ve got three songs to talk to you about. It opens with some bright synth tones which lead into a bruising hypno-groover called ‘Crab Riff’ which comes across like Cowtown (particularly on their first album when they were mostly instrumental) jamming some That Fucking Tank riffs. Quirky instrumental rock with flashes of Oxes, Devo... though they mention QOTSA in their press release but I’m not really hearing that. It’s quirky danceable instrumental rock fun though basically. Lots of stop-start bits and repetition. ‘Fat Crab’ has a weird wonky afro groove to it which is making me feel good but a little bit queasy at the same time.
