DIVEBOMB HONEY, THE: Let’s Start Something b/w Pick up the Phone: one-sided 7”

I’ve liked them from the start, but The Divebomb Honey is getting better. “Pick up the Phone,” especially, is propelled with cyanide keyboards and digital ants under the skin. It sounds like a Bladerunner-inspired Josie Cotton in a basement: sweaty circuit boards and played to an audience in underwear made solely out of electrical tape and Christmas lights. That or R2D2 rampage music… and it’s definitely for fans of either Devo or the Epoxies.
