- Adjust To The Light by Fufanu
I once heard a song so good that I can still hear it in my mind now.... I've NEVER found out who it was by. This was back in 1982 you understand. I bring this up because the clanging, 'Will We Last' is the nearest thing I've heard to that lost slab of greatness. This is amazing eerie and off kilter post punk that has nods towards PIL, Killing Joke and latterly Interpol. In the early '80's we all had robotic voices - even gothy post-punkers and I'm pleased to reveal that Fufanu sing in that stuttering clipped style - this matches perfectly with the guitars which erupt into a grand chorus with has just enough discordance to get me excited.
I could listen to this track all day but there's other stuff to consider too. 'The Hours' is a more laid back affair that could have come of the 'When Goth Goes Acoustic' compilation but there's plenty of sinewy John McGeoch guitars entering the fray to keep things frazzled. 'Blinking' is more standard dark indie fare whilst closer 'City Lights' breaks out the synths and drum machines for an eerie soundscape which builds with shards of guitars and scattered vocals. Definitely promising and 'Will We Last' is an utter corker to these ears.
