Anguish Sandwich

You know how Flying Nun used to release their really out-there records – the ones you suspect they really didn’t know what to do with but had a hunch were great - in black and white sleeves? Remember when Scottish bands first responded to Pavement – I’m thinking of the Delgados especially – and came up with something all their own? That’s where Anguish Sandwich are at right now.

Bermuda Triangle is their debut ep and it rattles waywardly with the mad delight of stumbling home from the pub after a great night. The only thing you can be sure of is that the vocals weren’t auto-tuned. What was that Delgados song? Yeah, “Tempered; Not Tamed” just about sums up Anguish Sandwich.
