CRACK IN THE BRICKWORK
So, you like your UK punk rough and dirty? Then may I offer CRACK IN THE BRICKWORK for your listening pleasure. Four songs, no titles, just the band's moniker scrawled onto a surprisingly noisy "low noise" tape. This sounds like a rehearsal demo, as opposed to a proper studio recording, but their delivery is awkward and disjointed, and it suits them perfectly. Plodding and frustrating UK punk, the third songs gets my vote, if only for the guitar solo that has no business anywhere near the rest of the song.
