Last seen in Cardiff supporting Future of the Left, frightmasked Mancunians come bearing precision-tooled riffs and sludgy menace in fine Shellac/Jesus Lizard/Oxes style. Grinding, intense and greasily funky singles 'Blood Of A Dove' and 'Leather Penny' are followed by debut album 'Snake Magnet', out July 13th on Brew Records (UK) and The Bronx's White Drugs label (US). Not to be missed, or soon forgotten.
Stealthily gathering a fearsome reputation for unassuming yet powerful scene-stealing support turns, awesome monolithic and mathy slow-building guitar-and-drum workouts from quietly magnificent ex-Mountain Men Anonymous pair. Still only one tune on the Myspace, so badger them to get something released. Soon.
STRANGE NEWS FROM ANOTHER STAR
