Concrete Ships6 song LP/CD/Cassette
This is one of those albums that magically appears out of nowhere and blows you away without warning. Hailing from the UK, the boys in Concrete Ships take every punk and hardcore influence and send them right into the blender, creating a hearty mix of wonderful noise.
The record starts off with an explosion, namely the Jesus Lizard-inspired insanity of Flotilla. It's a swift kick in the face that just rips with intensity. In the following aftermath, the band opts for a slow burn that meanders menacingly through the rest of the 5 tracks, a kind of smoldering, droning haze that never lets up. By the time we get to the last cut, We Never Were, you are simply left beautifully dazed and confused by everything that has happened up until then.
