Good god, this is just embarrassing. You can dress it up all you like and mention the Cure or the Misfits until you’re blue in the face, but this must be the most poorly-disguised attempt to cash in on the current post-punk fad I’ve heard since the Bravery, and at least they have the good grace to be a full-blown corporate rock sham rather than one masquerading as an actual punk act. There is honestly nothing good about Temper Temper whatsoever; a hookless, soulless wet fart of a band that no one should touch with a shitty old stick unless they’re truly hell-bent on scraping the bottom of the retro-flavoured haircut rock barrel. Ghastly.
