It's instrumental. It's a wee bit proggy. It was record of the week one week in Rough Trade apparently, which I find a little hard to believe. It doesn't tick so many boxes, but keeps on ticking the same box over and over until their hands are bloodied stumps. There are echoey drums and circling bass sounds. But they never really go anywhere and they get pretty repetitive pretty quick.
They're like Add (n) to x without all the robot sex and the live drums.Or the soundtrack for an Eighties cop drama in a very unglamourous city. Des Moines Vice, something like that.There is a track "Reno", which is slower but still not quite opening up. A slow night in Nevada.
