London-based post-punk band, Warmduscher, return with their third LP, 'Tainted Lunch'. It is the follow-up to their 2018 album, 'Whale City'. Their mix of punk, funk, lounge and hip-hop is likely to appeal to fans of Fat White Family, who they just happen to be mates with. It was recorded in just 4 days with South London producer of note, Dan Carey.

Tainted Lunch by Warmduscher

9/10 Will 31 October 2019

Warmduscher's star is in the ascent. Their unique brand of funk-flecked, disco-dirtied, sleaze-spattered garage rock has coagulated into what is probably their most complete artistic statement to date: 'Tainted Lunch'. 

Warmduscher's sonic armory has expanded. In the same way Clams Baker bellows at one point, "I can be anything I fucking want", the band are comfortable dipping whole feet into the gooey waters of hip-hop and funk. The mighty Kool Keith even appears on 'Burner', delivering a typically forthright and unyielding verse. 

There are nods to groups like Devo and Big Black, as well as less obvious lodestars such as New Kingdom and Black Sabbath. The intersection between East Coast rap and early heavy metal is the conscious lack of development. It's all about the groove. Warmduscher lock into a groove like no other band. Unncecessary complexity is shunned in favour of monolithic, towering, copper-bottomed, three-note riffs. Often, the bass, guitar, and keyboard will play completely in unison achieving a synthesis of all three; it's like a gleaming new instrument has been created. 

This album was recorded in four days and you can really hear it. It's not that the fat's been stripped away, it's that it never had any in the first place. Warmduscher's third album is lean and unprocessed like Ceefax. Before you know it, you're listening to the final doo-wop strains of 'Tiny Letters'.

'Tainted Lunch' oscillates between the angry indignance of a person under police questioning, the frantic gabble of a streetcorner sermon, and the seen-it-all weltschmerz of a whiskey-sodden barfly. What a ride, 'Take it all'.
