“..at last, here comes a band that is giving a visceral kick up the jaxi to the rotting carcass of rock’n'roll..” – The Stool Pigeon
Merok Records (Titus Andronicus, Klaxons, Crystal Castles, Telepathe) releasing a 10" featuring both bands with their own tracks on one side, then combining their skills to form a bigband, ripping through a ferocious cover of Sonic Youth's "Death Valley 69" on the flipside!!!!
An admirable disregard for the finer points of pop make them a fantastic noise machine. Cranking out a ragged, relentless cacophony that harks back to the gloriously bleak sound of early Jesus & Mary Chain or very early Sisters of Mercy. Triumphantly sullen stuff" - Nightshift.
Dark pop songs full of burning sounds and intensely bad ass groans. Fighting the drum machine and preferring heady bass over the guitar - Dreadful but brilliant! - Neu Magazine.
