Mr. Ted could have had an album here that would rival Black Flag’s My War and Slip It In, but that would be boring. Instead we have the most absurdly stupid album that you will ever enjoy for all of the reasons. Right and wrong.
If I had to list bands who I’d love to hear create a soundtrack, Qoheleth would be my top spot. Well, guess what just happened…
When talking about bands who shunned guitars from their lineup and ran with basses at full power, Exit_International and Castrovalva have always been the two bands that came to mind. Well now we have Modern Day Dukes.
They’ve got the band name, they’ve got the song title, they’ve got the Matt Berry sample, all that’s left is a weird prog-metal concoction to bring it all together…
I don’t like all of the seasons so I wasn’t sure as to how I would… okay I’ll definitely stop this now.
I don’t have a vanity spawned by fear, so I was sceptical as to how I would fair with this album. Verdict: you don’t need a vanity spawned by fear to love the new release from Fret! (I promise this running gag ends here.)
I don’t have sexy legs, so I was sceptical as to how I would fair with this song. Verdict: you don’t need sexy legs to love the new single from Mr. Ted!
I’m not very good at swimming, so I was sceptical as to how I would fair with this song. Verdict: you don’t need to be able to swim to love this new single from The Empty Page!
Those who have followed The Cauteriser over the last year will probably know about my mental health struggles, part of which I struggled to get out of the house for anything other than work, missing over a year’s worth of amazing gigs in the process. Obviously music is something that I am the most passionate about, so I was given a flyer for a monthly event near me where people gather for a few hours in the evening to stick on some records and talk about music.
Do you like your music loud, crusty and faster than an epileptic seizure? Then you’ll need a dose of Barque in your life.
