Ugly, antisocial muck that's like chewing a mouthful of tinfoil while chopping onions. Much of the time it seems slimy and unformed, like something that's slipped too early from the womb and is now writhing about in an uncouth manner on a sticky, gritty concrete floor. Despite this protean state, though, there's still something horribly knowing about it all - a glint in its otherwise blank eye that suggests a sense of grubby, unwashed prurience. Musically there are traces of Fang, Flipper, Numbskull and Void, and Goosebumps fit in well with all the other noisy, jagged, pimply-backed hc currently doing the rounds. All told, though, I think the underlying 'ugh' factor kinda gives them an edge and sets them apart from many of the triers out there. Jolly good stuff, though you may want to wipe your turntable down with something antiseptic after you've given them a go.
