The 2nd EP from the Glaswegian collective featuring members of Orphans, Collar Up and The Plimptons (RIP). This time the melodies are sweeter, the choruses bigger and the lyrics somehow even grimmer.
"Not since Jarvis led Pulp into the charts has the kitchen sink drama of daily life been so cleverly evoked. The whole ep is packed full of sardonic wit, and as for the music, well I'm not hearing them put a foot wrong.
I should maybe compile a list of bands to watch out for in 2013 that aren't on the 2013 bands to watch out for lists and slap these guys at the top just so I can do the told you so dance on the first of January 2014." - IT'S A XXXX THING (itsaxxxxthing.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/gums-antipathy.html
