- ...Are Bored E.P by The Suburban Homes
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 December 2016
Remember in 1978 when you were bored and lived in your mum and dads cul-de-sac and you felt like Jilted John and you had to get out and you tried to chat up Sharon from the chip shop but she wasn't interested so you went home and despaired? Well the Suburban Homes sound just like that but they are from now.
They could just go and play with an internet but instead have sprawled out a load of lo-fi scratchy punk tunes that sound like something that may have come out on Rough Trade in the late '70s. I'd find them a quaint amusement if it weren't for two things. First up their '70s era imagery of barbed wire fences and street lamps is updated to include iphones and selfies etc and secondly their songs are rather catchy. My favourite of the bunch is 'Cul-de-sac' which starts out like early the Fall before bursting into a great chorus bemoaning the dark grey cul-de-sac in which they reside.
Sleaford Mods have proved that there are lot of former punks still knocking about waiting for something that has the spit and anger of their youth. The Suburban Homes are blatantly in thrall to the old grey misery of violent '70s Britain. They don't particularly update the sound or bring anything new t but are a decent facsimile of the bands you listened to when you tried and failed to get a safety pin into your nostril.
