Mixing Snob.

“A six track record, formidable debut, clocking in at 12 minutes from a newish London band featuring members of Good Throb, Skylark, Family Outing and lots of others. Biggest comparison here is probably Rudimentary Peni, all creepy bass lines and subject matter imbued with the rage of anyone living under the regime of Boris Johnson and terminal street harassment. A literal hail of rage, snarly guitar, 1-2 1-2 Actually fuck-you drums, with astoundingly angry female vocals. Ones to watch.”

 

Quango

First World Problems recordings has just proudly put out its first record – The Quango Fatality 7″ e.p., mastered here.

3-song single from this short-lived London band and it sounds like a long-lost relic from 1978. The a-side is an absolute stunner, a jittery post-punk song with an insanely catchy lead guitar line and menacing, spoken vocals recounting a tube accident. The two songs on the b-side are a little more rocked-out with a distinct Sex Pistols inluence, sounding like the legions of provincial bands that started after the Pistols’ rise to fame. The off-the-cuff genius on display here immediately brings to mind the classic singles on labels like Rough Trade, Fast Product, and Step Forward.”

Buy it and listen to the whole 7″ here.
