Format: Audio CD
And So I Watch You From Afar are an Irish Band and 'Gangs' is
their second album (I cannot claim to have heard their first).

There are two guitarists, Rory Friers and Tony Wright; a bass
player, Johhny Adger and a drummer, Chris Wee and together they
produce a complex (but not forbidding) and tightly arranged
form of rock music. It is noisy and energetic and rather fun.

There are eight tracks in the collection and we are given
relatively little respite from the raucous sonic barrage.

When Messrs Friers and Wright play furiously in unison one
can almost smell the sparks flying out of their fretboards!
(This does in fact happen quite a lot but avoids indulgence
by a hair's breadth by virtue of their enthusiastic delivery).

Occasionally a sort-of 70's prog ambience creeps in (imagine
the love child born of a conjunction between Wishbone Ash and
Slipknot). The hardcore rhythmic mayhem of 'Search:Party:Animal'
is a particularly ebullient example!

The waltz-time '7 Billion People All Alive At Once' is a bit
of a curve-ball in the proceedings. The band demonstrates a
capacity for tenderness in the opening couple of minutes but this
is soon swept away by another deluge of sound as if they cannot
quite help themselves! 'Homes - Ghost Parlor KA-6 to...', too,
manages to generate a bit of breathing space before the big
loping monster of 'Homes - ...Samara To Belfast' rumbles over
the hill to eat us alive. Final track 'Lifeproof' finishes off the
job by scraping every last bit of meat and sinew from our bones!

Listening to the album is a bit like having your head slammed
repeatedly in a refrigerator door but in a nice way! Not music
for the masses but more than worthy of our attention and applause.

Play It Loud!

ASIWYFA return with a solid album. Maybe a little less lyrical than the self-titled album, more influenced by the Letters EP, Gangs is a masterpiece of power and technicity.

These guys are great! Played at Electric Picnic 2011 & were fantastic! Part of the Richter collective in Dublin. Some parallels with other acts such as Mogwai. Fun act. The album is great listening altogether - go geddit!
