Reviewed by Alex Deller on Nov 29, 2017

Punk made by and for people who grew up in terrible towns that offered no prospects and no culture.


Punk made by and for people who had to punch in at shop or a factory rather than spend time doing a string of unpaid internships that would allow them to waltz into sassy media jobs.


Punk made by and for people who live in a state of perpetual ennui, and feel weighed down by a deep sense of dread as to what the future might hold.


If Billy Childish grew up listening to Wire and Swell Maps rather than the Beatles.


How stupid and empty modern life is; how stupid and empty modern people are.

To conclude:

The songs are great; the sentiment's great; it's all deeply satisfying.
