Energy Czar by Hunting Lodge

I had completely forgotten I had this. It's another release conected to the Bristol label Blood Red Sounds. And Blood Red means the sort of cry an Antelope makes when caught by a Lion. It's just so refreshing to hear some blatantly objectionable noise with not a single reference to melody. There are similarities with the stilted rhythmic assault of the Chicago Punk movement and in particular Lake Of Dracula. With loins girded, I can just revel in the percussive use of every instrument including voice as a weapon.

To quote from their Biography: Hunting Lodge provide the perfect soundtrack to an evening spent dismembering a horse in a glue factory. Can't say fairer than that.
