Punx, Rungs, Lapsus-MODS-ETC. Get it in yer’ lugs….Lenin’s Jizz mask.

  • Hello, I’m right good at reviewing music. There are two kinds of music- GOOD and SHITE. Here is my verdict on some stuff I’ve been listening to- with obligatory qualification and waffle after the verdict- I see myself as a semi-gonzoid reviewer and this may bore certain readers. If in doubt, ignore my putrid two finger keyboard bashing and just play the fucking music yeah?

Most of this stuff I’ve just been listening to on my laptop- my iphone is too full of podcasts and pictures of myself to fit anymore music on it. Such is my life, anyway I read recently that downloads of music are slowly decreasing year on year, like for like- so by streaming I’m actually following the trend. I’m like WILL.A.ISNAE except my name isnae Wullie.

Fuch’s ache.

First up a split download. That’s like a split EP, except there’s no physical product. I’m fine with that, I’m holding out till that curmudgeonly old fucker Neil Young unleashes his amusingly titled audiophile digital format PONO, or PORNO or BONER or whatever he’s calling it.  MP3 files are never that good, awfully splashy-sploshy around those tricky high frequencies. Not that I’m that arsed you understand, I was massively into a Peel session of My Bloody Valentine that I recorded live onto tape as it went out- played it to death- when I finally got my hands on the bands actual studio records I was REALLY let down. Deflated, I was. So format means nowt. A killer song or wide open NEW SOUND means a lot. Like the newly thin twat singer from Brit-Pop also ran’s Kaiser Chiefs often says before he disnae spin his chair round on the Voice- “it’s about a feeling, about a hairs going up on the back of the neck moment”…..what he means is-“I didnae like it, because just before the chorus nobody went whoooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaa!”. He’s called Ricky or something. He’s deffo on the bellend spectrum, up near the middle- the purple/puce bit- like a positive Cancer slide.

I digress.

INSERT NDLMIN/DSMCK SPLIT PUNX EMBEDD HERE BUDDY.

THIS IS GOOD. Verging on the affy good. Sub-classification nae bad. This may be due to my total ignorance of Needleman’s chosen genre, and the lack of audible drums on Das Macmanus’s two songs. Sorry, I jest a little. Needleman have kind of changed- they popped up on Aberdonian Local music website ABRDNMSK- just like that dropping a S/T EP- I wasnae that much of a fan- it was aright, just I couldnae remember a thing about it after I’d listened to it. This half of the split is much better though, more songy, and much more memorable. I like the singing, it’s like a doric offspring. I don’t even like the offspring, apart from that jazzmaster/offset guitar that noodles made Ibanez make way back a bit.  The vox make it scotch, and in the year of smashing the guardian reading indyref fucktards being Scottish and not a fucking pussy is worth something. Das mac I’m not entirely sold on- just because Jan and Claire’s ( Aberdeen’s answer to Kim and Thurston) other band is exceptional ( SEAS***Y) . Das Mac are a bitty pub rock, not awful- but a bitty play to the gallery. Nithin’ wrong with that but I’m crabby. Mind you apart fro  everything else Claire sings on this, back up to a sold workmanlike chap- but she should do more singing because she makes a guid noise. That’s me.  GOOD. Verdict=GUID. despite vested interest’s it’s stood up to repeated plays.

CURATORS LAST HURRAH!

Punky last blistering bye bye from a band that were belting.

This is so good I can’t remember anything about it. I really enjoyed the two CD’s that the Curators put out, and (haud’ on a fucking mitute, and I’ll just check) I bet everything they recorded is now FREE on BANDCAMP. Sad days, never seen em’ live like, ’cause I hardly leave the house nowadays…
