8/10 Staff review, 03 September 2014

To celebrate their first ever US tour, Uncle Acid drop a new single, and not just a new 7" with a song from their album, we've got new material here! They seem to have dropped the "& the Deadbeats" altogether fact I've just noticed that they're referred to as "him" instead of "them" in the press release too. Have the rest of the band been fired? A quick cross reference says no, just the drummer.

It's a big riffy slab of psych-glam pop, anyway. The band's trademark Beatles-esque vocal harmonies and harsh chunky guitars are in full effect, with a few nice little bits of close guitar harmony that makes me think of a slower Iron Maiden. They're not breaking new ground here so much as sticking to and refining their strengths, if you liked 'Mind Control' you'll almost certainly dig this track too.

On the B side is something I thought I'd never see - an Uncle Acid acoustic track. It's a ponderous thrum through 'Devil's Work', the closer of the aforementioned album. It's alright, perfectly functional I suppose, but with a band like this whose selling point is how over-the-top they are, it seems entirely surplus to requirements. The A side is still shitkicking enough to make this a worthwhile purchase though.
