Ace 7” here of goofy digital punk from the amusingly named Diesel Dudes, whose homoerotic opening paean to weed and working out is a hilarious mixture of dirty Atari-Teenage-Riot-doing-Iggy Pop’s-‘Real-Wild-Child’ distorto-beats and a kind of A Frames meets Devo meets Rammstein vocal delivery, very on-beat and almost chanty. ‘East Bay Rats’ again mixes heavy and distorted drum machine beats and aggressively repetitive modular synth action with obnoxious chant-like vocals to entertaining effect.

This mixture of primitive electronics and angry, snotty punk attitude makes them seem kind of like steroid-chugging transatlantic cousins to Sleaford Mods, but the synths actually sound pretty good here, much less tinny and rinky-dink, and the social commentary is less sharp, mostly a goofy satire of macho culture. Both bands peddle a kind of disaffected and primitive and very 21st century electro-punk sound though. ‘Muscle Memories’ on the other side is a fist-pumping bit of robotic industrial aggression. I like this, it’s brash, confrontational and pretty unique.
