GOLDBLADE: The Terror of Modern Life: CD

Jul 24, 2013

Fronted by John Robb of Membranes fame, this band have been plugging away since the mid-’90s to a certain amount of indie success, perhaps in part to Robb’s former band. I never gave this lot the time of day due to them being a part of every big commercial festival back in the day. I don’t know what the other gear is like, but this CD is cracking, falling somewhere between the later Ruts, Killing Joke, and UK Subs. It has huge production, decent lyrics and a shit cover, so close your eyes when listening.
