CRAVATS, THE: Jingo Bells: 7"

Apr 29, 2016

First new recording in thirty-one years by these Crass pals. The title track is an alternately dark, dissonant, and oddly catchy ode to the hyper-patriotism that currently appears to be infecting the larger nation-states. The flip, “Better House,” is a swingin’ ditty, maybe a bit more subdued than the feral fury of The Birthday Party but nonetheless blessed with some sharp teeth, lyrically and musically, of its own. A spot-on single all around and a fine welcome return to the fray. Limited to five hundred copies.
