Gropetown – Obey the Shepherd

Artist: Gropetown
Title: Obey the Shepherd
Label: Winning Sperm Party, Scotland
Details: DL/CD. 4 tracks, 10 minutes. Available from Winning Sperm Party

Noisy bastards from Glasgow – they make Crass sound like Yes. Four tracks of gonzoid shoutiness by folk who think a tune is something you suck to ease the inevitable sore throat. But underneath it all there’s quite a good little punk funk band waiting to get out. Particularly on final track SLDR which breaks into a nice little slap bass funk workout halfway through. Praising their musicianship – they’ll hate me for that! There are just 50 CDs going for three quid apiece or you can download the EP for free. Tasteful sleeve too.
