They sound pretty intensive and fiery. The oddness of their single in the summer has been subsumed by big flames. It sounds like watching Snub TV footage used to feel: lively and theatrical and essential. "I Am Here" is big on the drums, heart-quickening drums. The whole spirals up and up. Then "Husbands" closes proceedings - sounding more like Jello Biafra. Far less sleek than the single. That's all I really have to go on.
There is some area of the imagination that this music prowls about in - like Pixies or The Slits. A part where sex lives and there is blood and full, dark colours and things outside the window. I'm not sure what they are about lyrically on "Give Me A Gun"; but they are hanging around in those dark garages of the soul. All "ill at ease". There's more of an atmosphere than a structure exactly. There's less for me to latch on to; but it's powerful.
I want to see them live.
