Wet Nuns - 'Wet Nuns'

Wet Nuns - 'Wet Nuns'

Album Info

  • Release Date: October 7, 2013
  • Label: Throng Of Nobs
6 / 10 This Sheffield duo started as “a joke that isn’t funny any more” (their words), and are splitting up soon after this debut comes out. Such disregard for their own existence means it’s easy to forgive the northern din-makers’ deficiencies, such as singer Rob Graham not having a power-bellow strong enough to helm Led Zeppy opener ‘7 Year Itch’. There’ll be no mourning the loss of a potentially great band here, but there’s fun to be had in the Queens Of The Stone Age-alike ‘Hanging’ and the Wolfmother romp of ‘Broken Teeth’. Plus the band are releasing ‘Wet Nuns’ on their own Throng Of Nobs label, meaning that they’ve run away with the accolade of best band/label name combination of all time.
