I never got to see Giant Haystacks, but I saw Airfix Kits’ first show at the Knockout in San Francisco and it’s obvious that these two guys have this music so ingrained in their lives that there’s no end in sight. Allan and Alan have the ability to constrict themselves around a song, taking their time and methodically squeezing the vibrant, flavorful juices out of it until you’re soaking head to toe in something you’re not sure you really understand other than the fact that it’s fucking good. Early Wire meets Minutemen but played by three guys who know how to make something their own. I can’t wait for more from this band.
