NME Review 'Wrecked Angles'

'This is Les Savy Fav doing Captain Beefheart, a totally unpredictable racket that, for this very reason, is double-mega'

BANG!  This, friends, is avat-jazz-punk and if you like songs with choruses, or indeed any form of structure, move on.  Those left, put down your beard combs and pay attention.  This is Les Savy Fav doing Captain Beefheart, a totally unpredictable racket that, for this very reason, is double-mega.  Exeter's An Emergency (currently on live hiatus) hit you with frantic math rock ("Dead Cats"), hardcore muscle flexing ("Non Stop Movement, Non Stop Force"), but can suddenly surprise with sublime astral art rock ("Let's Get Forgotten").  Rolo Tomassi and now An Emergency?  Seems the UK has itself a burgeoning braincore scene.
