Yes, finally Firefly *puts an end to our prolonged anticipation and lets us hear this fabled side project from – if rumours are to be believed – certain members of *Instruction *and *Garrison *- and boy, has it been worth the wait! Veering erratically from post-hardcore to pummelling metallic noise, back through to Indie-punk _Erotically Charged… _is a gloriously wreckless musical joyride through the cluttered underground ghetto of the current new breed of genre-less wonders that sees these five New Yorkers trailblaze a chaotic, hedonistic path of destruction, _Back To The Future_-style; mounting the kerb of predictability, smashing into *The Locust *and *The Blood Brother’s trash cans and splashing a grimy puddle of discontent over the queue of the next identikit teen-angst wonders.
With song titles like _Kill The Cool Kids _and _At Least Be a Target _it comes out at you short and sweet and with all the wide-eyed, vein-busting vitriol of *Murder One / Medulla Nocte *vocalist Paul Catton whilst simultaneously containing some spectacular bursts of melody amongst the more cathartic moments.
A remarkable, breathtakingly fresh release *Gay For Johnny Depp *will give you the kind of art-rock suckerkiss that’ll leave you gasping for more.
