Bear vs Manero: The Bifacial EP

Skingasm Records (SKCD0003)


Okay, another band I have never heard about. This punky sludge/post-hardcore band from London has previously put out a couple of singles and this EP form November 2013 is their latest outing. They state their influences as The Stooges, Pixies, The Jesus Lizard and The Cardiacs. There are just four tracks in 17 minutes: “Fluoride Frustration Face”, Discordia 2.1.”, “Thor’s Super Sweet Sixteen Party” and the more narrative and slower “Budd”. The vocals are closer to old punk rock with some actual melodies which is a good thing. The guitar and the bass are pretty heavy but not ultra-heavy, down-tuned or anything like that. I got to say that this is definitely not my kind of music, but I’m sure people who like this kind of stuff will also enjoy this EP that you can now purchase from the band’s Bandcamp site. The digital download is “pay what you like” and the limited compact disc just 3 pounds so this is a bargain. Check it out!
