I can empathise with Bristolian newcomers The Total Rejection: they had difficulty finding new bands they wanted to listen to. Their debut album, Wrapping Yourself In Silver Foil Won’t Save You From The Blast, was inspired by that void, so they threw a bunch of influences into a magic hat, such as 13th Floor Elevators, Stereolab and Prisoners, together with Nuggets, Pebbles, The Velvet Underground, The Who and Spaceman 3 to create a garage-punk-meets-psych-pop sound that does more than just scratch that itch. LP and CD on Raving Pop Blast.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 March 2018

They may be hiding behind layers of mystique but I know that name when I see it and this appears to be a new project of Andrew Jarrett of 90s garage pop rackateers the Groove Farm and later the more Pavementy lo-fi pop of Beatnik Filmstars. The press release suggests that he and his unnamed cohorts are struggling to find anything inspirational in todays music and instead have looked back to find the good stuff. Them and everyone else it seems. 

What this results in is an infectious blast of incendiary garage produced in needle-in-the-red lo-fi style with severe nods to Spacemen 3 on 'Licking Furniture', Billy Childish on the bluesy 'Did You Fall Out the Window'? and Stereolab on the droney kraut of 'Party Seven'. But the real moment of bliss is on opener 'The Legendary Orgasm' which is a smashing piece of garage rock sounding something like the Seeds or early Love  - it's raw and raucous and brilliantly authentic. 

They aren't changing any worlds with this but like a lot of people of a certain...um...vintage are using their vast and expertly curated record collections to have fun replicating the best bits using all manner of vintage gear. Why not eh?
