Point Being - Degustation and Troppo

Ah, the beautiful violence of Sydney basement rock. Sure, they've heard the first 3 Wire albums a lot of times, but this superb debut 7" shares contemporary sonic space with the nagged raggedness of Unity Floors and Royal Headache's direct punch.

They're calling this a 'double b-side' which speaks not of self-deprecation but of a love for The Doublehappys, surely their closest touchstone, who did the same thing.

The riffs just build and build and build. And then stop. Because the cumulative effect of noise and tension is a goal in itself. One day these riffs will hypnotise teenagers who will rightly worship them.
