There's lots of nice things about living in Cambridge. Nice views, nice weather, nice buildings, nice colleges, nice students, nice river, nice boffins And lots of very jolly nice twee indie bands.
None of whom feature on this CD.
Another plus was that local bands who did want to kick over the musical statues got in touch with R*E*P*E*A*T, and this 5 band compilation is the result.
Anti-Social Burn-Outs are the sort of band Cambridge is desperate four; young, loud, tattooed, snotty and punk as fuck, they recently beat Towers of London in a fight and stole their haircuts and riffs; Cosycosy are long time allies whose shambolic girl-boy vocals have never managed to fit in anywhere on the local scene; The Hope are that rarity - a dirty, growly, riffy rock'n'roll band that dares to talk about politics, class, race, sex and burning shitty little cities; The Khe Sanh Approach spouted furious poetry like a more crazed Mark E Smith (sample couplet "They starred in their own eyes / In Che Guevara merchandise") backed by furious trebly guitars - until they imploded under the pressure of being the most unfashionable kids in the riot; and Bomb Factory, whose venom-spitting, boffin sampling punk-poetics gave the collection its name, despise the Cambridge scene so much they declined to go on the compilation - hence its inclusion as a secret bonus track.
This 12 track CD is being sold as a four way split single, and should cost no more than £4 from shops, the bands or direct from the Repeat website.
Nice price, nice idea, nice CD?
