Kaito : Catnap
This is guitar music as it should be played by lusty young things with scant regard for animal welfare.
This is more like it. If Fuzz Light Years are a pint of flat, warm beer in a Camden pub, then artfully scrambled Norfolk quartet KaitO are a lethal Tequila slammer session in a trashed penthouse flat overlooking, erm, Norwich. So if we really must dig up the whiffy corpse of indie guitar pop, at least the shovels should belong to shouty boy-grrrl iconoclasts with a fistful of demented buzzsaw blast-o-rama. 'Catnap' is not only a huge and hummable terrace chant rant, it truly rocks like it wants to torch your record collection and have sex with your dog. This is guitar music as it should be played by lusty young things with scant regard for animal welfare.
