Karl Blau EP by The Video Nasties

The Video Nasties 'Karl Blau' EP. It's a 4 track 7" disc of raucous lo-fi britrock stumbling somewhere between Good Shoes and some trashy garage punk ala The Horrors in a dustbin. This is the kind of stuff I still dig as it's breathlessly energetic and unpretentious with a clattering vigor and a bit of a scratchy Buzzcocks vibe that renders the tunes fresh and moshtastic. To be honest, the state of British indie hasn't altered in the 6 months I've been away but the emphasis here is more DIY/C86 (they recorded this in their shed! Hurrah!) seemingly, than post punk overcoat doom or Bloc Party technical stadium sheen which endears me hugely to this fun slab o' wax. Track 4, 'T.V' is a whirling, snarling punky racket with a great lopsided wonky attitude and a relentless shitty organ that just propels it to greatness. Nice to see a good old fashioned 7" EP too, just like what the fab four used to make! Oh and that name is destined for stardom. Also nice to observe that they've taken 7-8 months to follow their debut (which just SHAT out!) A hearty surprise..
