Altrincham’s finest purveyors of ‘Prunge’ Horsemeat return with another head wrecking blast of scorching tunery to clear your eardrums and open up the floodgates of hard hitting three pronged action says Wayne AF Carey…
The fourth release from Altrincham trio Horsemeat is another raging beast with a classic thundering dirty grunge riff that hits hard. “Manchester’s finest charged with disorderly conduct” says Bert (or Rob) in distorted Fall like style spoken word over a crunching rage of drums and bass that don’t fuck about, with thundering momentum that builds like it’s predecessors. It’s got that ‘Ding’ (Salford Steve Albini) Archer trademark production all over the fucker. As they say: “The song hazily re-tells the story of an outsider that strays into a privileged area and is met with horror and disdain from people who preach love and acceptance, but practice hate and division. “Rusted” churns out a grunge riff so hard that it refuses to leave any heads unshaken, before descending into an abstract verse where the tale unfurls.” They’re not wrong and they’re ready to hit the live scene with anticipation. Watch this space…
