We've had our peepers on these creepers for a few years now. In that time they've added a bassist, we've seen them live about 204 times, their sound has gone deeper into the darkness of the garage-punk depths, and they have never ever disappointed.
Their brand of gut-punching, self-deprecating punk is surprisingly unique (for punks), and just infinitely pleasing. To the extent that Joe Talbot, frontman of IDLES was so impressed by them that he played 'My Obsession' when sitting in for Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music.
Every time we've seen them play or heard a new track, they've consistently delivered air-tight Ramones beats, severe bass lines and squealing, tortured guitars. We're lucky enough to have already heard the album and there isn't a dip in energy or moment of respite on there.
'Sick of Me' is no exception. It scorches along, with sixties garage twang struggling to wade through sands of distortion. Is is as relentlessly angry as it is catchy.
