Cuddly Shark

Elgin! That’s IV30, presumably home of this rather angry-sounding trio. If you’ve been to Elgin this may be understandable. Who they’re punishing is unclear but they’re like early-album Wire, or Mclusky – hollering “look at me!” like a ADD teen with a bottle of Sunny D in one hand and an AK47 in the other.
‘Hails of Bay’ on the other hand is a song as silly as its title with a mock Tennessee accent, so it’s left to the brilliantly titled ‘Jamie Fox On Jools Holland’, a spittle-flecked rant which repeats “I heard you sing the worst song I ever heard” for its entire 45 seconds. Class.
