Surf rock it said. Yes please I said. Here’s the latest from The Wytches who I haven’t got around to checking out yet. ‘Wire Frame Mattress’ isn’t surf rock, but the influence is there. It’s got an anarchic distorted post-punk kind of drunken stumble to it that reminds me much more of the increasingly popular Fat White Family crossed with underrated and shortlived late-’90s nasal whiners Stony Sleep, with the guitar and vocals borrowing heavily from the Eastern scales of Dale’s ‘Misirlou’ in a loose, slurred crunch before heading into some fun Link Wray-inspired string-slicing.

Over on the other side ‘The Holy Tightrope’ has a nice slinky groove with a scratchily rumbling bass tone and more of a stalky understated feel than the cock-out swagger of the A side. Once again the guitars are quite surf inspired, but in a Poison Ivy-playing-in-the-Birthday Party kind of way rather than something that’d have been acceptable on an early ‘60s instrumental platter. Admirably gnarly.
