Now that's an im­pres­sive de­but LP by this Lon­don group, who've ap­par­ent­ly been around for many years al­ready but took un­til now to come up with a full length record. Right out of the gate, the open­ing tracks has some vibe á la ear­ly Sac­cha­rine Trust with a touch of Flip­per. Out­sude Look­ing In kinds plays out like a for­got­ten Wire track col­lid­ing with the likes of Vol­cano Suns, Mis­sion af Bur­ma in ad­di­tion to more re­cent stuff by In­sti­tute, Peace de Ré­sis­tance. An­i­mals Eat For Free then starts out loose­ly re­sem­bling eight­ies The Fall be­fore tak­ing a quite melod­ic turn in the cho­rus. And so it goes on, this eclec­tic and teste­ful war chest of ideas and in­flu­ences, among which you might al­so con­sid­er X (AUS), Mem­branes, Cra­vats, Fun­gus Brains, ear­ly, pre-dub-in­flu­ence Swell Maps and many more old DIY (post-)punk greats, just as much as con­tem­po­rary groups like Shark Toys, The Cow­boy, So­ci­ety, ear­li­er Sleepies, weirdo frenchies Sub­tle Turn­hips, oth­er Lon­don groups like 2010s garage pow­er­house Sauna Youth - of whom i'm re­mind­ed most­ly in the more straight­for­ward sec­ond half of this record - or maybe Tense Men, whose swan-song al­bum, re­leased post-breakup in 2018, bears some strik­ing sim­i­lar­i­ties to this thing. There's ab­solute­ly no room for bore­dom in­be­tween these end­less flash­es of un­hinged in­spi­ra­tion and cre­ativ­i­ty.
