What is a boxer rebellion? Maybe a horde of boxers, led by Herbie Hide (who m' good friend Matthew once tried to sell a lady's dress to at a car boot sale) going nuts and refusing to fight ever again. That would be entirely more entertaining than this band who, lets be frank, are pretty guff. They are playing a vaguely gothic version of grunge, it has guitars, shit vocals, drums, keyboards and bass, a thin 80s style recording, and ooh, it's so dark. Fuck off. I threw this away after 1 song and 1 minute of the second track.
