IFIHADAHIFI: Fame by Proxy: CD

Another band here that sounds like they’re looking for some sorta intersection between noise and pop. They’ve got the slashy, discordant guitar-as-percussive-instrument thing going, and sometimes they go for full-on racket mongering, but at the same time it sounds like they’re swinging for the fences to come up with the definitive no wave-cum-terrace-chant anthem, if that makes any sense. Can’t say they’re all that successful, but they do kick up some serious sonic dust when they get going and they definitely get propers for trying to think outside the box.
