A crime has been committed and someone needs to fess up; whilst he was in the looney bin did someone feed Adam (minus the ants) a load of pills and then record the ensuing freak out? Sounds like this cheeky Lodge crew could have done just that! This could be the most brilliant and catchy pop if it wasn't for the superbly unhinged vocals and ove the top noise/keys/pedal abuse.

Whilst absolutely fucking insane the Lodge manage to hold together some fantastic tunes and moments of killer rock n roll. The indie scene has been completely desensitised by the ear abuse dished out by skin graft, load, 31g etc it's nice to hear kids that can shock and amaze at the same time. Art school indie that instead of coming across as trendy and hip is like a depraved and completey strung out version of les savy fav, fucking brilliant. Can't wait to see them live!
