The Cool Greenhouse – “Crap Cardboard Pet” 10″
Casio beats and guitar minimalism with dry, sardonic vocals – it all leads to an inevitable Fall/Mark E Smith comparison. Or a cost cutter version of LCD Soundsystem. The humour and lyrics are more in the tradition of Half Man Half Biscuit, Ted Chippington and I Ludicrous. And it’s on Lumpy Records – so it’s lo-fi, overly DIY, slightly crappy and slighty brilliant. And very likeable. A sacred offering to the ghost of John Peel.
