new band of the day : Flies On You : DIY post punk
Flies On You sound great. they are a two piece post punk duo from leeds and they have that classic, clattering sound of the darker, grittier side post-punk driven by a clipped Burnel bass and an FX laden guitar and those off hand vocals that were so key to the form. There is a whiff of the great Stranglers to the whole affair and I totally love them.
Featuring a former member of the long lost Nerve Rack who I once reviewed in the late 80’s, they have somehow contrived to come up with the best and most fresh sounding thing they have ever done.
They have their debut album, “Nothing To Write Home About”Â, released on September 3rd 2012.
