small gang (damnably)
smallgang are a half-japanese London based trio fronted by two baritone voiced brothers that have been making a name for themselves with volcanic live shows exploding tight poppy post-punk with effortless complexity and crazed solo's. Bitch Magnet, Shonen Knife, Versus and Geoff Farina love these guys and so should you!
Gideon Co BBC 6musice: “rather good”
Artrocker: “deceptively deadpan songs often mutate into noisy but controlled thrashing. (Cockpit) is a particularly fine tune.”
