Fuck me this is good!
Visionstate - Ricky Skinner (vocals/guitar), Rob Alderman (guitar), Adam Dickens (bass) & Rob Willoughby (drums) – hail from Nowheresville UK (well, alright Newport Pagnell actually) and make the sort of strident, urgent music which makes one feel good to be alive. Yes, really.
This demo – which is one of the best I’ve heard in months - makes even the most mundane of tasks seem like the most rock ‘n’ roll thing to do; ironing to ‘Rush’ becomes extreme ironing; ‘Won’t Let Go’ will transform vacuum cleaning into an Olympic sport. As for the frankly fantastic ‘Make Your Mind Up’, well, what can I say? Let’s put it this way I played the rip snorting, thrill seeking, closing track, nay choon, with it’s Lydon-esque sneer FIVE FUCKING TIMES on the way home from work last Friday night and nearly crashed the goddamn car. Seriously.
That’s how good Visionstate are. What you all need to do now is visit www.visionstate.co.uk and check this shit out for yourself. Quite honestly if Visionstate aren’t signed up by Christmas I’ll kill Santa.
