THROWING STUFF: Fit, Fine & Well: LP/CD

It’s been four years since I first heard the thrashy cacophony produced by the aptly named Throwing Stuff and I had long considered the band to have been despatched to the annals of history. Imagine my delight to discover that not only was the band still in existence but that a debut album was in the cards, too. Fit, Fine & Well continues in the same vein, with a frantic hardcore delivery featuring one of my favorite vocalists. Ben Small manages to sound like he’s in a breathless rage most of the time, which adds to the whole sense of agitation which emanates from Throwing Stuff. I’m also looking forward to see the band live soon, as well when it supports Clowns. –Rich Cocksedge (TNS, [email protected], tnsrecords.co.uk)
