Bit sluggish today. It is ironic that on the very same day, during which we spent a significant proportion preaching the gospel of the virtues of not drinking during the week atop our ever-present moral high horse (and very tall it is indeed) to pretty much anyone who would listen (turns out a fair few people think we’re worth listening to), that we went to Ally McCrae’s surprise birthday bash and pretty much started boozing it up straight away. We’re suckers for the classic margaritas. What’re you gonna do, y’know? Drink up, that’s what. We woke up this morning to find that we were not only being subjected to gale-force winds – which is apparently what you get when you leave the fucking windows wide open all night – and Bojack Horseman via Netflix playing on our laptop on seeming infinite repeat. So, we’re a teensy bit rough today. Not maximum-overdrive rough like the days of yore, but enough to be mildly put-out, and certainly more than enough to whinge at you lot about it. We need awakening. Enter Cannibal Animal. They messaged us little over 30 minutes ago with a link to current Track Of The Day Motorkade, and instructions to “PLAY IT LOUD”. We acquiesced. We’re glad that we did. These dudes from Hull (or Kingston-upon thereof, if we’re getting real specific about it all) label themselves as post-punk, and we don’t think they’re wrong. The problem with a lot of post-punk, you see, is that it is shite. Cannibal Animal seemed to have acknowledged this discrepancy and dealt with the issue head-on by coming up with something that could ride alongside the likes of God Damn and The Horrors on one party; and Arctic Monkeys‘ more Queens Of The Stone Age moments which a lot of people, including us, would consider amongst their most incisive. We’ll be keeping an eye on these chappies quite closely and reckon a bunch of you guys should do the same. Y’know, if you wanna.
