Dark Actors: Extraordinary Renditions (Hacienda Records)
Download Only from here
Ged Babey was fed up with 2016 so far… until now. Unusually, he is a man of few words.
2016 is shit.
This is the soundtrack.
Most stunning thing I’ve heard all year.
Dark Actors are shadowy figures from Manchester. Where fuckin’ else?
I ‘discovered’ them via Mick Middles review in the Quietus.
They sound like Stephen Hawking jamming with Sleaford Mods. Or a Dalek Joy Division tribute band reciting Chomsky.
Just have a listen. It’s fucking brilliant.
And buy it so they get a crack at the Christmas Number One slot.
No it’s not a haiku, its a review.
All words Ged Babey
