There’s also been something just a bit more snide about noise rock in the UK that has spoken to my sensibilities. In an era where it seems many are content to pull from the Mclusky playbook (and aspects of The Fall’s impeccable catalog), there’s a new crop of bands making artistic weirdness and spewing their own venomous political sarcasm. Enter LICE, the first band signed to Idles’ record label, Balley Records, a band that incorporate a sinister twang into their unhinged freaked out cowboy punk. The band released two companion EPs, It All Worked Out Great Vol. 1 and 2, both scratchy and scathing, taking a bluesy saunter and dementing it into their own slurred punk chaos. It’s brash, noisy, and full of that maniac charm Falco perfected so many years ago. The next generation is arriving, and LICE is one of the better starting points.

Band Members
Alastair – Incoherent ranting
Silas – Legend
Gareth – Likes to play bass topless on his knees, eyes closed, sweat tenderly dripping off his forehead and nestling amongst the moist bristles of his moustache, his long curls delicately poised upon his shoulder blades. As the song finishes he opens his eyes and sends a gentle wink your way. Wow, what a man.
Bruce – Eye-Candy & purveyor of double kick pedals
