This limited edition 7" comes with free 1970s toilet paper. Yes, really. Released on Sussex-based label Market Square Records, this DIY punk record is raucous, angsty and brimming with bad attitude. Crawley-based The Suburban Homes formed, apparently, out of boredom and recorded this EP in a day. True punk style. For fans of The Mekons and Swell Maps.

More music from another time made right now in 2014.
The Suburban Homes are a bunch of bored Double Dutch drinking punks from Crawley who decided to record a record in a day...you know, to pass the time and to fight the man simultaneously. Contained within are angsty, rough round the edges, UK pop-punk anthems that may have benifited from a couple more days rehearsal before commiting them to the old four track. The titles tell you everything you need to know...'Suburban Homes', 'Pseudo Intellectuals' and 'D.I.Y'. Three agitated punk classics by a bunch of angry lads that contradict themselves by shouting down mediocracy and boredom whilst being mediocre and boring in the process.
Still, if it was the first time I'd heard something like this I'd think it was fucking brilliant. For those of you curious about the 70s toilet paper, it's like our modern day tracing paper but stained cig-smoke brown and it'd cut your prissy privileged little 2014 butt to shreds.
10/10 kol Customer review, 18th October 2014
For a brief moment when first tuning into the latest 7" marvel from Market Square records in the Uk ... i felt my 52 year old body involuntary spasm-ing around the kitchen table, somehow wanting to be back in Hackney town hall or a German beer cellar circa 78' listening to wheres Bill Grundy Now' from the TVP's... It was brilliant. The fact that this release was 'The Suburban Homes' Ep' recently dropped as a limited 300 copies, which comes in three different coloured sleeves (white, blue & yellow) and contains inserts of 70s styled toilet paper (why not you may ask)!!!!!, is an even bigger plus in this old punks life and gets very high praise indeed...
Three tracks which sound like they were indeed recorded in the same toilet the paper was stolen from, producing a din which my own children complained about not knowing if I was taking the piss or simply dad headbanging to some old shite which he often harks back to from his youth...
Either way, the fact that there are still young punks wanting to make low fi badly recorded simpleton music for a jilted generation in opposition to the high brow tech hedz who currently drool over long awaited Aphex Twin albums, and U2 give-aways on Iphones speaks volumes for the credit given to these lads. Not only did it make my day, im not even considering trying to illegally download the shit...instead im gonna buy a copy, digitalise the three tracks and turn the fkn thing into a clock... brilliant.
