Go on hands up....who like the Slits? Ok. The Raincoats? I see. Well you are in luck as this art punk band out of Olympia mine a similar post punk path. The band are known for chucking sounds against the wall to see what sticks leading to chaotic and confrontational music that perfect place where beginners enthusiasm and expert songwriting meet.

Room for one more post-punk, post-Slits guitar tanglers, honey? Well if there is then Table Sugar fit the bill. They make an extremely lo-fi garage racket full of vim and vigour. It appears to have been recorded live, comically the recording on 'Marry Me' keeps overloading - I'm all for lo-fi but this is sub bootleg quality.
The thing is though this recording that sounds like someone has placed a tape recorder in the corridor outside the practice room actually lends the songs some gravitas - as if we are earwigging in on rehearsals to something that might become something special. They specialise in under-rehearsed spindly post-punk that when it comes together shows impressive melodic interchange between the instruments and like the Slits something that is generally falling apart suddenly lurches towards brilliant pop moves.
It's a unique piece with loads of promise - they need a producer who can temper this sound - make it listenable to the human ear without knocking out the enthusiastic sprawling avant mess.
