Formby Channel: Saucy Seaside 7"
New EP from a bunch of UK noise punk mainstays. Despite the label and personnel involved, this is some fairly straightforward, mid-tempo, rocking punk. If it weren't for the joke element I'd say this has a slightly UK82 vibe. It makes me think of some of the "funny" second-wave punk bands like the Toy Dolls or maybe even the Adicts. In addition to the humor, there's also a progressive/experimental element that reflects the members' "noise not music" background. All in all an excellent release, and definitely one of the most interesting and memorable releases in this style of recent memory. Noise Punk Records
