Boomkat Product Review:
This Leeds quartet scored themselves a single of the month accolade in March's edition of Artrocker, thanks to the jerky, slightly discordant charms of 'Brouhaha', which taps into the same shadowy corner of Britpop as the Young Knives did on their earliest efforts. Shortly after that comparison presents itself, things get a little more complex and more difficult to categorise, with the verse part in 'Fact Finding' fusing modern African pop rhythms with hollered vocals and gruff, distorted bass. While so many American bands seem to be merrily throwing together Afropop influences in a fairly cartoonish fashion nowadays, O Fracas pull it off without quite so much fuss. Amongst this exhausting tirade of juddering guitar pop come two oases of melodic clarity: 'And So A Scratch Runs Down The Wall' and the folksy waltz 'You Can Hear The World From Menwith Hill'. This is all good and well, but on the whole, you'd have to say the band sound like they're at their most comfortable tearing about the place with rhythmically disturbed punk-funk numbers like the barnstorming 'Zeroes & Ones', which closes the album with an energising, rough-edged fervour.
