Pissed-off punk rock from sweary London gobshites Good Throb. Murderously mental, this eloquent debut album involves tracks with names like 'Dog Food Dick', 'Mummy I'm Ugly' and the straight-to-the-point-no-messing 'You're Shit'. But then they called it 'Fuck Off', so you already have a pretty good idea of what you're getting. Noisy, but neither big nor clever. LP available on Superfi.

- Fuck Off by Good Throb
This morning's been all ambient drones, avant-garde weirdness and drawn-out psych jamming so far, so it's nice to get a breath of stale punky air in the form of this debut LP by London DIY noise terrorists Good Throb, led by singer KY Ellie who rants and rails against creepy men and low self esteem to a crunchy lo-fi noise punk backing with shrill Erase Errata-ish guitars, clanking bass and spindly post-punk rhythms, mixing a head-nodding Shopping-ish deconstructed precision with awkwardly bundling almost Wankys-ish splatter.
With no-nonsense song titles like 'No Taste', 'Mummy I'm Ugly', 'You're Shit' and 'Dog Food Dick', and indeed an album called 'Fuck Off', this LP is every bit as snotty and obnoxious as I'd hoped it'd be, but also totally danceable and accessible and no doubt great fun live. Whether they're doling out mid-paced A Frames-ish automaton punk like the scratchy 'Central Line' or blazing broken power-pop like 'Double White Denim' that follows it, there's something engagingly vital and authentically pissed off about this nihilistically clanking troupe that'll keep you coming back for repeat listens.
