Readabout, Writeabout - and listenabout, live tonight in London
Following on from last week's record shop round-up, behold as Eight Rounds Rapid Writeabout spends a third week on Norman Records best seller chart - and goes on to Rough Trade's recommended listening list.
But don't just take the rubber stamped Rough Trade/Podrophenia seal of approval as indicator of what a slam-handed wall of sound of the single is. The collected web whispers and reviews are glowing, and gathered together below - a recommended reading list of the Eight Rounders reviews.....
Eyeplug Magazine 'Not for years has complaint rock sounded this mean, this exciting, brimming over with anger. An absolutely perfect storm'
Sputnik Music 'The infectious energy is absorbing on every level'
Gigslutz - 'Fantastically unique – an exciting cacophony of sound that should not pass you by'.
Eyeplug Magazine (so good they reviewed it twice) 'venomous slice of back to basics rock n roll, coupled with socially observant lyrics'
Ralph's Life 'coming at you full on with post-punk ferocity, just plain nasty!'
RW/FF review and Track of the Day: 'A tune that I genuinely can't get enough of, and a must-listen for indie and punk people'
Fruitbat Walton - Top Ten Track
