Already EP of the decade?,
This review is from: The War Room (MP3 Download)
A simply magnificent 5 track EP - if you go to the bands own website you can purchase the cd version as I did. It will be the best £3.50 you will ever spend on music for a long time. Stunning & original piece of artistry/ musicianship mixed with social comment and worthy tributes to freedom .(The mini album is movingly dedicated to band relative 26 yr old George Willgoose who died in WW2 ).
The most significant track 'Spitfire' sears and flows like the said aeroplane ; it swoops, arches and accelerates to quite astonishing guitars keyboards and percussion. And of course that brilliant BFI soundtrack voice over. Sensational stuff - as Messrs Gideon Coe, Radcliffe & Marconie already know .
Buy the album though and not just the single....all tracks are gems and some quite superb banjo and bass on the incredibly haunting 'Waltz for George' completes. He would be very proud of this I suspect.
As another reviewer correctly mentions its no Jubilesque/ Warmongering effort, quite the opposite. And makes me feel even gladder as a result . If you like the classic Propaganda (ironically from Dusseldorf ) album 'A Secret Wish' or some tuneful Joy Division like 'Transmission/Radio' you will also love this. Totally original .
