Shit Present

They call it "period doom" but you can easily tag this excellent 5-track 12" with punk-pop or powerpop.

Evaporate features a guitar solo straight and direct from the punk class of 77 on top of huge, thundering Pixies-style noise.

Anxious Type can be seen as what happens next to the narrator in Martha's 1997, Passing in the Hallway. She's "still haunted by the girls from school" but historians will note that the yearbook didn't show that she sang a great song about her classmates who won't be cool enough to hear this.

There's even a ballad (sort of), Melbourne. It's about hating small talk, not the city's great music scene, because this is a record that fits in with the new British punk DIY scene like Pinact, No Ditching and Dog Legs.
