Here’s a band who are probably lots of fun to see live. If the record sleeve is to be believed, the London Dirthole Company boast four drummers, three guitarists, a bassist and a rotating line-up of singers, so I’ll bet their shows are real parties. On the first side of this 7” there are two songs in just over two minutes featuring a Lolo Wood on vocals. She’s got a piercing post-punk delivery somewhere between Amanda Palmer and Poly Styrene, and the opening 47-second track is my favourite of these two since the second ends with somewhat irritating vocal theatrics that I don’t have much time for (think Crass doing Suicidal Tendencies) after starting off as a quality bit of party rock’n’roll r’n’b business like King Salami or MFC Chicken. Spirited stuff nonetheless though.
On the other side it’s Keith Goldhanger’s turn at the mic for a track which stretches past the three-minute mark. This one is a bit more psychedelic and the four-drummer chaos is much more effective here. It’s spunky and entertaining stuff all round though, the abundant percussion does give their sound a distinctive and unusual edge and as I mentioned before they’re probably a riot to see live!
