9/10 Mike Staff review, 24 July 2013

This is a welcome relief. I’ve spent the first half of this glorious morning reviewing frankly weather-inappropriate records of mogadon drones, freeform percussion and muffled mumblings, and now look what’s just arrived to reward my patience - an LP of Spider Bags (or is it Spiderbags? They don’t seem to want to make their minds up) singles on Churchkey Records. Their recent ‘Shake My Head’ LP was an office fave so I’m pretty stoked this is here.

It’s crammed to the gills with brilliantly stripped back garage rock’n’roll with elegantly crafted melodies and a snotty punk edge, and even a snarling take on Hank Williams-style country on ‘I Wish That I Never Had Fed You’ (B-side to the hilariously obnoxious ‘Papa Was A Shithead’ 7” on Sophomore Lounge) and some soulful lo-fi power-balladeering in ‘Shaunda (I Don’t Know My Sign)’.

At their best, though, they’re doling out deceptively well-constructed pop music with gleeful, stomping abandon, a combination which it’s hard not to compare to the late great Jay Reatard, especially on tracks like ‘Take it Easy Tonite’ and ‘Walking Walking Nowhere Nowhere’. Plus this collection spans the five-year period of 2008-2012, so if you’re new to Spider Bags it’s a great place to start! This gets an enthusiastic recommendation from me.
