Smoke Notes

With the 80's revival thing growing more and more tiresome with every sharp-dressed, floppy-fringed band that seems emerge on a weekly basis, it's always refreshing when someone puts fresh spin on it, and even better when that someone is local.
Whereas most of these groups take their cues from the skinny ties of early 80s NYC, Christchuch's Pig Out look to the baggy T's of late 80s Manchester for inspiration. Indeed, Club Poems could quite easily be a lost product of the "Madchester" and Hacienda scene and wouldn't be out of place on Factory records during that labels heyday. Mid-period New Order and, especially early Happy Mondays are the obvious comparisons here, but rather than merely imitating, Pig Out sound like the real deal – old but not dated, home-recorded but not lo-fi.
Some not-to-subtle drug-references and vocalist Kit Lawrence's blissed out free-styling evokes The 'Monday's Shaun Ryder. Elsewhere 'White Boy' gives a nod to Underworld's 'Born Slippy' while tracks like 'Jules On X' hint towards the more "modern" sound of LCD Soundsystem et al. Speaking of drug references, The Shocking Pinks' Nick Harte is credited as a "longstanding collaborator" and adds some suitably funky white-boy bass to the aptly-titled 'Disco Bag'.
Club Poems is an infectious listen, with just enough old- school rave moments to transport the listener back to the early 90s and make these tired and weary old bones feel almost young again!
For a band so young (formed just a year ago), this is a strong and assertive debut and one that is well recommended.
