Ikara Colt : Sink Venice

There's been a vicious rumour going around for the last 20 years or so that The Fall made some half-decent records and Mark E Smith could 'sing'. Now we know who you are and you should be ashamed of yourselves - it's idle tittle-tattle like this that makes impressionable youngsters like Ikara Colt think it's alright to hawk up a bit of shouty punk mayhem that only needs half a chorus as long as they sing it with a mouth full of cold custard. It might be alright for chanting down the next global warming rally (er, shouldn't that be 'Save Venice' by the way?) but it won't wash round here. I blame the parents. And Ikara Colt's parents are clearly both John Peel.
