Kid Klumsy – Singing Our Souls

When covering their last EP, Spit Your Dummy Out, we suggested that Kid Klumsy were despite being around for a few years already “ready to grab a chunk of the limelight”. That they did with that particular release which just grabbed body and spirit like a rebellious puppeteer. Now they are getting greedy and going for even bigger rewards and rightly so for new offering, Singing Our Souls, is one seriously rousing incitement of the band’s uproarious punk ‘n’ roll.

Released on the UK band’s highly anticipated appearance at this year’s Rebellion Festival, Singing Our Souls hosts another six slabs of the Coalfield outfit’s voracious rock ‘n’ roll. Mischief and defiance are as ripe as ever within their bold and tenacious bodies of punk bred sound, Kid Klumsy stamping their own inescapable individuality with increasing vigour and relish throughout another outing which just had us leaping with over enthusiastic rigour.

Straight away we were being reeled in by the devious lure of guitar as opener Mr Right Man waited to pounce and that it did with zeal as rhythms bounded in and a devilish hook colluded with similarly virulent riffs. In no time the familiar tones of WEAB, also known as the front henchman at Dirt Box Disco, were stirring up their own side of belligerence, accosting and inciting with relish. A glorious scowling bassline just completed the epidemic of temptations fuelling song and listen, gang vocal persuasions only inflaming already eager engagement in the track’s virulent antics.

Not to be outdone, Slob thrusts its body forward with matching prowess and gusto next, the guitars weaving a web of catchy endeavour as riffs and bass snarled. The immediate sing-a-long enterprise of the band grabbed instinctive involvement, the song almost preying on an inherent weakness to resist such anthemic arousal.  With muscles and catchy imagination swinging, the song devoured inhibitions before Dislexic Munkiz stormed the breathless remnants with its own rabidly catchy rock ‘n’ roll leaving exhaustion grinning from riff harried ear to ear. Ferocious in breath, devilish in touch, it just epitomises the Kid Klumsy creative audacity.

Love Is A Battery Field entangles ears next, initially with a guitar wire before breaking into an animated surge of predacious riffs and hungry rhythms, a fusion just as tenacious as fresh hooks and vocal baiting erupt around it. The bassline cast by Alistair in the midst of it all simply infested the passions being ably matched by the guitar incitement of Carl and Greg within the dynamic punches of drummer Jamie as vocals roar. Together it made for one fiercely persuasive attack though soon eclipsed by that of She’s A Fu*k. Alistair again leads the temptation, his lone hook at the start teasing eager ears before being ablaze with the fiery motivation of the guitars. With metal forged steel in its prowl and old school punk in its bearing, the track proves addition sparking rock ‘n’ roll with increasingly inventive temerity.

Maisy’s Song concludes the pleasure, its punk rock weave a swift and persistent urging on ears and body relentless in its nagging whilst relishing its success. It is a rousing end to another release from Kid Klumsy which effortlessly demanded and received unbridled attention; we sure to be merely one of a hefty crowd corrupted by its goodness upon its release, starting with those at Rebellion.

Singing Our Souls is released August 1st through STP Records. http://www.stprecords.co.uk/

Impulsive Compulsions: Sampler 3

We all have certain things we look forward to whether on a daily, weekly, monthly or whatever time scale basis and for us one is definitely the latest issue of the In the Club Magazine from The Perfect Pop Co-op, the inimitable UK label from St Albans. Recent copies of the online treat have only escalated the pleasure of reading about the label’s creative family and releases by giving away a free MP3 sampler of their sounds; the latest issue, No. 40 to be precise, providing the third of those delicious musical side dishes. It is another eclectic mix of sounds and imagination within The Perfect Pop Co-op embrace and another encounter which just sparks a wish indeed need to explore deeper.

Devious in its intent, the latest Impulsive Compulsions Sampler simply teases attention throughout as epitomised by the Middle Eastern flavoured lures opening up another slice of their electronic rock fuelled enterprise from the ever fascinating Dislocated Flowers going by the name of Saladin. The band has been a regular feature of the samplers so far and again it had the imagination alive with its instrumental’s cosmopolitan intimation just as Scant Regard similarly had it and ears equally involved in its DEFCON 1 invasion of the Edwin Starr classic, War. With samples escalating the instinctive drama of the track, it engulfs the senses with a withering and compelling insurgency, the solo project of Will Crewdson (Rachel Stamp, Adam Ant, Flesh for Lulu, Bow Wow Wow, She Made Me Do It) as striking as ever.

Reverse Family is another stepping up to spark eager attention, the solo project of Dermot Illogical teasing and arousing with Make The Most Of Your Headache. Even with its gentle rise there is an organic swing which truly comes to life as its punk/post punk antics collude with Dermot’s inimitable words and tones.  There is a great Swell Maps-esque whiff to the song’s potent shuffle and enticement, bait matched in strength by that offered by its creator’s other guise/day job within The Tuesday Club. Their contribution is Wow Jazz, a devilish jazz funk clad proposition cast with the band’s unique swing and contagiousness which had the body bouncing as high as an organic appetite for their sound was lusty.

The Venus Overload is just as lively as they bound in with Flying Face, its tenacious garage rock stomp a wild come feral antagonist body and spirit had no protection from, each leaping with nostrils flared into its manipulative fire.  This is a band we only wish would return from well let’s call it a hiatus, songs like this thick reason and this particular one a definite favourite among this fresh batch of nothing less than treats.

As earlier suggested, it is fair to say that all tracks within the sampler left an instinct to explore their creators further, the pair of Creature Of Desire and Time To Say (80’s electro mix) from Andreas and The Wolf and The Scratch respectively no different; the first providing company for an shadow loaded urban electro saunter, danger soaked seduction lurking at every rhythmic and electronic turn while the second dangles indie pop bait within its DIY rock ‘n’ roll adventure with just a tinge of Fad Gadget to its electro shadowing.

Jordan Thomas steps up with We’re Here, the song casting an indie pop jangle over ears soaked in post punk dissonance to easily captivate while 50ft Woman swings in and sets out another inescapable claim on favourite album moment with Strictly Only Swinging. With attitude fuelling every note and syllable, the track is a thrilling slab of virulent punk rock with echoes of a tempting mix of early Blondie and the Mo-dettes as The Raincoats add their delinquent pennyworth but as unique as you could imagine or desire.

The album line-up is completed by Hello Dearies, a newcomer to these ears but sure to be regulars if Song For Disillusioned Man is anything to be persuaded by. Springing from collaboration between Nashville hailing musician Dominic De Lugosi and songwriter Mandy McNeill, the track is a haunting psych rock seduction, a siren of a song drawing the imagination upon its mystical coated rocks.

It is an increasingly enthralling addition to another collection of artists and tracks which deserve the deepest of attention; explorations we can assure you only providing the richest rewards as you simultaneously immerse in another great issue of the In the Club Magazine available now.
