• solarflares That Was Then ... and So Is This (pink vinyl LP, £12.50)

    label: damaged goods

    The band's second set, came out on Twist in 2000 and features less gloriously distorto production but don’t let that fool ya into thinking it’s a slouch – no sir. The album’s expanded, richer and more defined (dare I say, cinematic?) sonic palette encompasses kinetic acoustic riffery (“Miles Away”), fuzztastic beaters (“Sucking Out My Insides”) and the obviously Gerry Anderson-inspired (“Angel Interceptor”) – 'tis a stone pleasure, indeed!
