You have to wonder sometimes if this sort of stuff - sturdy, disciplined, committed - is being made behind some weighty musical iron curtain.
Possibly delivering themselves straight to a life of penury, Glasgow’s [a]PH Family[/a] make the kind of affecting and spasmodically excellent melodic hardcore that might just let them get away with being – argh – A Great Live Band.
You have to wonder sometimes if this sort of stuff – sturdy, disciplined, committed – is being made behind some weighty musical iron curtain. On the one side: empty shelves, gloom, a few old records, guitars made by Trabant. On the other: a dazzling array of instruments, techno, hip-hop, post-rock and – look! look! – even Radiohead! If they leapt across the wall, though, the consumer choice might just finish them off. Better that in their rigorous
righteous way, [a]PH Family[/a] remain worthy comrades. Forward!
