Great review from @thedevilstuna

Reverse Family – Not the kinda boy you want to invite to tea – big thanks @thedevilstuna for this appraisal of a track from ep27 #rf365

“It’s outsider pop that’s so far outside you need binoculars to see it.”

We start this week’s collection of Fresh Sounds with a song that’s two years old but it’s been beautifully preserved so it’s as fresh as the day it was recorded.

“Not the kinda boy you want to invite to tea from the prolific Reverse Family, the solo project of Dermot Illogical, (first featured on the blog early last year, The Weekend Mix 11th February 2017) is prickly, scratchy, lo-fi post punk that sounds like Wire tuning into Alternative TV. It’s outsider pop that’s so far outside you need binoculars to see it.”

WE ARE THE TEAM an alt ‘WorldCuparama’

WE ARE THE TEAM an alt ‘WorldCuparama’

Big thanks to the one and only Mark Barton for his appraisal of We are the team… not strictly a football song, but the cap fits… just… and we’d hate to get sun In our eyes! Here we give football (this summers next obsession) a bit of a Sunday League slant… there’s no VAR here folks, the song wouldn’t get passed the intro! We are the team will feature on the final ep (52) of the bands massive 365 project, but with Russia 2018 looming, here’s a different slant on things! 

World Cup songs, what’s the general consensus. Me personally, I hate them with a passion, three lions, that New Order tosh and that’s before we even scratch a little deeper and go all Waddle and Hoddle on you. Hard as it is to imagine but they’ve often proved more embarrassing than the national team we put up every few years and entrust with the nations hopes, the payback being that an early doors exit is always on cards and that your gut feeling, another chalk up for the Germans, ends up taking the prize while the Football Association shuffle to fumble some vague excuse as to a work in progress. A fifty-year work in progress not ‘arf but what do you expect from a country that excels at mediocrity and no we won’t mention Brexit, what a cock up that’s proving to be. All said, I’m quite buoyant about this year’s world cup, I’ve accepted we won’t win it, I’ve faith in the manager and the squad, the goalkeeper situation irks me a bit but hey ho if the ten in front of him do what they are meant to do, he should have a relatively easy run. Quarter Finals and I’ll be happy. So why am I wittering about the World Cup, only that Dermot from the Reverse Family has been in touch with details of a video showcasing a forthcoming download only single, a kittle World Cup baiting that’s what we need in our life right now and to stuff it is. The animated video pretty much portraying everything you need to know about Leeds United in the early 70’s – I swear we spotted Giles and Hunter in there. The sounds, well as some wit once said, it’s a game of two halves in so far as yes, disappointingly it’s a football song, but secondly and more importantly, it’s a good ‘un, for ‘we are the team’ is wonderfully scuzzy, no kid pop sing-a-longs here, just pure unadulterated post punk edginess birthed of a parentage of Public Image LTD and Magazine types all soldered to an austere blank generation spiky sparseness that’s both wirily chilled and somewhat gouged in a superbly subliminal acuteness.

Out today EP35!

Morning all, hopefully a better Monday for most as it’s bank holiday (though we do of course salute those poor buggers who are working today!) a day which sees the arrival of RFEP35! This 7 tracker kicks off with an anthem for the bank holiday, in the shape of: Why can’t I always feel this free? (day 239).

It’s never too late to catch up and delight in the fickle way Spotify’s analytics make you feel you’re making progress then knee you in the back of the leg… how hundreds of spammers follow and then unfollow on soundcloud

… despite our cheek, you’ll find all released tracks our here, until we end our distribution agreement:

reversefamilydiscog and reversefamily/soundcloud.com or on Spotify

Huge from the heart love as ever to all who are embossed with the will to still like, play, share, buy and stream under a ever expanding digital onslaught, for this, once more, we salute you.

Social NOTwork (day 241)
Fish and Chips and mobile phones (day 242)
