A strong four-tracker from Oliver Ho a.k.a Broken English Club. Bleak, propulsive and dripping with sweat the Scars EP manages to make an industrial post-punk aesthetic simultaneously cold as ice but with a human warmth. Not dissimilar to the early promise of Daniel Avery. Out on limited edition clear vinyl on Cititrax.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 02 April 2015
I don’t know whether it’s just the imminent spring but I’m feeling very sexy at the moment. Like a kind of young pup raring to go. Too much information? You’ll deal with it.
I’m enjoying looking at the sleeve of this record which features a couple of ladies enjoying all kinds of fun. And before anyone says anything it’s not sexist... it’s sexy. Anyway I’ll save that ‘til later and get on with the task of telling you about the music on the clear vinyl with a blob in the middle. It features a drum machine probably dating from 1982, a kind of aboriginal didgeridoo sound and a howling wolf. The second track features pulsing synths and the most depressed voice known to man mumbling over the top.
Basically it’s four different varieties of minimal synth darkwave. My favourite maybe being the final one when the lethargic vocals almost get themselves into a state of excitement and the pulsing synths redefine the word 'squelsh'. Perfectly fine to have been making this in 1981 - perfectly fine.
