Tear Up The Streets

You never, ever ask a band about their influences. They’ve been asked it 3,263 times in the last week and they’ll probably just list a load of French authors. Occasionally, though, it all makes sense. London’s BIB claim to have been compared to Joy Division, Suicide, and The Cheeky Girls. Confusing? Yes, but true enough, this scabrous slab of sheet-metal scuzz-punk leaves you feeling angry and dirty, like you’ve just been touched up by Lib Dem MP Lembit Opik.
