Punter on a Barge
Rating: 7 fat reds out of 10
I saw Spray Paint live a couple of years ago and left thinking they sounded a whole shitload like the Intelligence - kind of an angular, repetitive, post-punk thing going on, with the vocals barked or chanted more than actually being sung. On their new record "Punters on a Barge," they sound more like...well, goddammit, I still think they sound a whole shitload like the Intelligence. Not that that's a bad thing, because the Intelligence are radical. And it doesn't feel like they're trying to rip-off the Intelligence either, more like they're just two bands who are driving in the same direction independent of each other. Hell, you could probably throw Tyvek into this same party most of the time, and I love all of those bands.
