HERE’S SOME DIY
That is the name of the compilation album that “Fit For Work” appears on
the link for the full review is here
I apprear on this 3 times as myself, on guiitar with DeKadanCe and bass with Surgery Without Research – If you dont want to read the whole thing which is highly encouraged as it is a cracker of a review – here are the review bits of all 3 tracks
Russ Crimewave donates one of the best songs of the entire collection with the gruff and raucous one man pulse ‘Fit For Work’. An antagonised masterpiece of raw, off the street musicianship that speaks to many folk who are at the brunt of the governments cold-hearted approach. Of course the bending fiddlers of those free fruits need a thumping but our artiste is concerned with those that are truly suffering and being told to get up and do that which they are not capable of. A searing piece this, a real miffed construction and a stand-out cutlet from a lengthy bout of absolute quality.
… the following westernised wank off of ‘What About You’ by DeKadence are a great couple of bedfellows with this latter song acoustically distorted and somewhat cavernously haunted and throwing the CD into new rhythmic realm. Folky and fucked this is a nice place to visit and keeps us alert as to what may come next
Surgery Without Research
Surgery Without Research plough on with a street based roughness, clout back with common people’s coarseness and bring to the table raw and ready silage from a sewer of discontent. Lacking frills, this open wound called ‘Pig Government’ bleeds threat and no matter how unprocessed it is, the fact remains that stuff like this is the backbone of a scene sometimes too pretentious for its own good.
As some of you know I play in various different bands and a duo – As it is easier to keep track of all the gigs in one place, any gig done by DeKadanCe, Surgery Without Research or Drugrat will also be on the gig listing – I wont be listing any of the other bands playing just that we are playing so a SWR gig will just say SURGERY WITHOUT RESEARCH gig – it will give you details of where but not who else is playing.
Sales of the new CD were going spectacularly well when the “secure transaction” function ceased to work coz the bloody cerificate had run out and when do I find this out – 5 days later when someone tells me – loads of site vistors but zero sales – couldnt work it out.
I have now got it running again (thanks technical help for once you were very helpful) so apologies if you were one of the people who tried and failed to get a CD or download. Everything should be working again.
