A horrible hack

Year Released: 2019
Format: 7"

Reviewed by Alex Deller on Jun 19, 2019
If you don't like the lead track here then I guess you're just lame scum. Unapologetically dumb punk that goes so far around the bend that it somehow ends up being super smart, formed of little more than a huge chiming riff and some swaggeringly incoherent vocals. It's complete and utter mind-numbing joy, and a very rare thing indeed. B-side 'Rent Quest' is a bit queasier but doesn't quite match the same giddy heights, churning along in a Saints-meets-Swell-Maps kinda way that's brain-mashing in its own right but ultimately overshadowed by that ridiculous occurrence on the flip.
