Released: July 2006
The reason so many journalists rubbed their sweaty plans together with glee at the prospect of stringing adjectives together over these two Canadian ex-metallers-turned-8-bit-circuit-benders, was because pop music had never had anything quite like it in its midst. Of all the images conjured, that of ‘battery acid rain falling on a playground full of school children’ seems to go some way to coining the noise of their debut single. The second release on the now-revered Merok imprint, people said that it was the closest thing the Noughties had witnessed to a punk-esque happening, and they weren’t wrong.
