Encyclopaedic boxset ‘The Power Of Negative Thinking’ gathers up every last crumb that’s fallen from the East Kilbride noisemasters’ high-piled banquet table over the past 26 years, from the snarly ‘Kill Surf City’ to the filthy ‘Teenage Lust’. There’s even a few nuggets that have never been released before, including this sonic gem of a fuzz-free Reid brothers; sweet, New Order-ish melancholy with a drum-machine and little indication of the furious racket that would erupt mere months later.
