Nine Black Alps

Bitter End

Nine Black Alps October 2005
Does anybody really care about Nine Black Alps anymore? Nope, and songs like ‘Bitter End’ are the reason why. Basically, they’ve done a Cooper Temple Clause – in other words, NBA are a prime example of a once edgy, exciting band (remember ‘Cosmopolitan’?), who have abandoned all their once-pure intentions in favour of churning out inoffensive indie-by-numbers and competing for a ‘coveted’ spot on Jo Whiley’s daytime playlist. A few people took exception to their Nirvana-lite approach on their first record, but this track is more heinous a crime to our ears.
