MOD VIGIL: Mod Vigil: LP/CD

Music need not be complicated or over thought for it to be effective and entertaining. Mod Vigil’s debut album is a prime example of this, having been recorded using four tracks in a bedroom. The resulting lo-fi, thrashy cacophony is perfect, with a frenetic garage punk outcome that is so enthralling that it only took me hearing one song before I ordered this direct from the Melbourne-based trio. The Mod Vigil experience is a pulsating one, providing a magnificent ear bashing. This is great. –Rich Cocksedge (X-Mist, [email protected], x-mist.de / Off The Hip)
