Agreed. I like this stuff a lot.

It just sounds like a proficient Birthday Party tribute band with shoddy lyrics about 'the common man' rather than bats.

They sounder angrier this time round. And why not I suppose...This one makes me think of Wire for some reason.

First album was disgracefully overlooked/ignored.

These guys remind me of Slovenly a little. Only heard the new one, but I'm definitely digging it!

they're great

whole record is good but Want Remover and Tarpeian Rock are my standouts (only heard Under Color)

Mark E Smith, Swell Maps, Joy Division, Hold Steady, No Age etc..

I hear some Wedding Present too

The new album is a 'merican parallel , in sentiment ,to our Sleaford Mods with an added bonus of tunes .

Top effort

These guys have pretty much instantly become one of my favorite current rock bands. Both albums are killer.

Judging from the new songs they are playing live, the next album is going to destroy.

Not really digging the production, but I love the song. It does kinda sound like gvsb, good call!

Not sure about "Why Does It Shake?" but "Blues Festival" from the split 7-inch with R. Ring is awesome (linked upthread). Kelley Deal from R. Ring sings backups.

Just realized today I've been getting this band confused with Monotonix and I have no idea why?
