Buddy recommends: “honest, angry and uncompromising debut album that has not left my record player since its release date - Don't go gentle!”

Javi Recommends: "snarling and gnarly wit-punk - favourite lyric of the year so far goes to "the best way to scare a Tory is to read and get rich"”

Kurtis recommends: "perfect antidote to austerity Britain"

mark recommends: “as the name suggests, a brutal, snarling and addictive debut - Well done!”

cerbic lyrics spat out of riotous distortion at glorious break-neck speed demand to be played damn loud – despite their noisy approach, you can hear real craftsmanship here – amongst the scuzzy cacophony lie proper wholesome riffs & melodies.

they met as a quintet at the death of the indie scene in Bristol & began making visceral & sometimes unlistenable post-punk to a growing crowd. They want to give themselves & their art to the audience in a concise & violent way unrivalled by their peers. They have no qualms in terrifying & entertaining in the same breath. They celebrate their influences in a vitriolic & belligerent sound that is both familiar & new. fans of girl band's intense post-punk-noise-rock need to check this out. ‘pumped up kicks in steel capped footwear’ 9/10 - godisinthetv
