Various – ‘Thinking About Moving To Hastings’

Various - 'Thinking About Moving To Hastings'


The former label home of Fat White Family pull together clattering contributions from across their roster

“When times are hard (and popular music goes through a prolonged period of being shit) people get up and start taking things into their own hands”, claim Trashmouth Records. This compilation from the former home of Fat White Family stakes the London imprint’s claim with a racket against the masses. It opens unpleasantly with Zsa Zsa Sapien’s political poetry (”Let them know that we are British and that they are foreign muck”). Fat Whites contribute a ramshackle national anthem in ‘These Hands’, while the surf-punk ballads of Pit Ponies are among the most captivating tracks. Japanese garage, Velvet Underground-like folk and clattering grot-rock make up the rest of a filthy collection full of enough commotion to ensure that it’s never dull.
