The Battery Farm: Poet Boy – new single and video
The Battery Farm are back after the scuzz punk wonk madness of Crude Oil Water. This next single Poet Boy cranks it up even more with a tinge of Mancunian punk flavour and bile says Wayne AF Carey.
With a slow build that creates a stark background and proper Manc attitude, you’d expect an indie tune here. Yet this is The Battery Farm here and you can feel that crushing sound waiting to burst in the background with a menacing and rolling bass line. Then it goes fucking mental! A wall of sound which crashes back down with the lyrics “He is a lie” which slams straight back in. A total burst of scuzz punk wonk that thrills the ears!
Just for a note! The pub in the background is a Manchester staple in Ancoats that shut down after 20 years. My dad almost ending up being landlord at one point! How fuckin’ strange is that? I nearly ended up living there! And it will stick to Mancunian tradition by being a Joey Holts pub!
