Violence Creeps - On My Turf - 7

Labels: VEECEE
Review by: Alex Deller

This is probably one of my favourite 7″s of the year. It’s rough, nasty, sneering stuff that hectors and howls but stops just short of aggravating, merging the acne-prone clangour of all that Toxic State stuff with some Flipper-esque sax honks and, at times, a sharp, needling angularity that reminds of Ut or something similar. Whether they adopt a mid-paced lope or a faster amble Violence Creeps are always interesting and always kinda threatening: a top combo as far as I’m concerned and one that’s made them essential listening since the thing rattled through the letterbox and landed with a greasy splat on my doormat.
