Boomkat Product Review:
This first full-length release from The Liftmen for Twisted Nerve is recorded with Portishead's Jim Barr and arrives on the heels of a contribution to the B Music 7" series Migrating! Caustic! - Mutatable! ('Belly Can', which is provided here for your reference) plus an entry on the Now Is The Winter Of Our Discount Tents selection from three years back ('Meat Raffle', which is also to be found on here). The band are not only quite unlike anything else around at the moment but quite bizarre even by Twisted Nerve standards. The atonal strumming of 'Belly Can' combines garage rock frivolousness with new wave abrasion, and the whole album seems to be laced with a woozy preoccupation with the absurd. Intriguing stuff.
