Called me a weirdo but frankly I wont be happy until every household in this fine land posseses a copy of this EP, for it is mesmerisingly brilliant.

Moving Forward and DNR are so good they leave the competition staring blankly at their instruments muttering to themselves in ore of Protokoll's utter genius.

The other tracks continue in the same vein of excellence leaving but one conclusion, This band deserve to be massive!!! Whether it will happen is up to the buffoons at the HQ's of the magazine companies, but if they dont I will go to my grave knowing that 'Moving Forward' is one of the finest Epic Soundscapes every committed to disc.

Get on board and join the Revolution you mothers - its time for the new sound....

In short this album from Canadas finest is for fans of - Editors/Departure/Interpol and another very exciting new band called Protokoll.

Its wall to wall razor blade riffs and killer tunes, a tiny bit like 'Thursday' without the throat shredding vocals, plus there are slower moments but make no mistake - this rocks.

Ash Can School, War Is Beautiful and Caspian, will melt your brain but its the shouty noise pollution of K/S that will blow you away whilst mutating you into a jibbering fool begging for more.

Truely immense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start lads, 20 Mar 2003
This review is from: Easy Rider (Audio CD)
Having gone out on a limb to buy this having heard good words said about them in the media, i cant say ive been dissapointed. The title track Easy Rider is decent enough, distorted vocals and funky beats, seem to land it somewhere between Ladytron and Richard Ashcroft. The chorus is decent enough and it does the job. The story of this 4 track EP however has to be 'Underdog' (track 3), its hard to judge how good a track is off a tip but if you to take a chance on one song this year, let it be this one. A more subdued track with more of a classic indie sound, to give Richard Nancollis the chance to shine. Its an anthem, as the name may suggest, for the common man and has the catchiest chorus ive heard in...well ever. The end breaks down with head bobbing decleration that its 'how we roll, deep inside this soul', the neck hairs will not escape untouched. Its a modern day History by the Verve....just great.
