ALBUM REVIEWS : LONE WOLVES - SKELETON TRACKS
Give this excellent mini-album to 100 people and changes are quite big that you will have something like 100 different versions. They all might be positive even if such things always depend on who you’re giving it to but you’ll get something like 100 different references. I decided to give it a go and the only thing I am sure about is that they found their basic roots somewhere in the 80’s and that it’s not exactly Glenn Medeiros. Opener “No Falling” is a bit like the minimal electronica from Flying Lizards while “No Name” took me back to the delightful post-punkdays where bands like Associates ruled, all added with the primal scream from Alec Empire though. “My name is Betray” could have been on the genius Propganda debut album and “Lowwit” could have been written by that chap named Giorgio Moroder. And there you have it, the sound from this British band in a nutshell….you read it over cuz you see “British”? Yes, today in 2010 there is such stuff being made in the land of the Queen!
