On the surface this is more similar to "Once Like A Spark" than "Zero For Conduct" but if you dig a little deeper then the similarities with the first album come out.

This release maintains a slightly more melodic sound, but brings through the harsher guitar riffs that Jetplane Landing are now well known for. This is the first JPL release that has come close to reproducing the live sound, and as good as "Zero For Conduct" is as a studio album that feel was lost.

It shows the progress the band were making between the two full album releases, and the fact that all the songs were in the live set long after "Once Like A Spark" was released pays testiment to how important / good the songs are.

Stand out is "Acrimony" but all are amazing for a band with no major label funding.

This EP is where Jetplane Landing start to develop their sound towards a more hardcore sound. However, getting heavier by no means forces JPL to sacrifice melody or subtlety.
Every song on here is excellent so its hard to pick a standout, my personal favourite would have to be the excellent 'An Upheaval.'
As already pointed out by the other reviewers the fact that these songs remain in the set list is a real testament to their relevance and quality.
The perfect companion to both 'Zero for Conduct,' and 'Once Like a Spark.'

AH this is one of the best E.Ps i have heard, its the perfect transistion album from zero for conduct into once like a spark, introducing for the first time that rawer punk edge provided by the extra guitar.
This E.P really sounds great with the stand out track being Acromny which screams of great guitar riffage
Buy this, then Once like a spark

ASIN: B00006RSNT Jetplane Landing: Els Quatre Gats [SINGLE] [LIMITED EDITION]
Jetplane Landing's DIY ethic has kept them rooted in the underground, however a recently completed 70-date tour and widespread critical acclaim of their most recent album, 'Once Like A Spark', look set to propel JL into the spotlight. Their frantic, raw, post-hardcore is infectious and often contains pretty cerebral lyrical topics (just read the pretentious 'word list' in the CD sleeve).
This four-track EP is something of a stopgap release between JL's full-length albums. Although there are no bad songs on 'Els Quatre Gats', there is nothing here to rival the brilliance of 'Tiny Bombs' or 'What The Argument Has Changed' from their first album. Vocalist Andrew Ferris is perhaps JL's biggest weakness. His strangulated yelps certainly suit the urgent, post-Fugazi rhythms, but it is impossible to take him seriously. I imagine it would sound wondrously original, but only if you had never heard anything by At The Drive-In; Ferris' shameless attempts to emulate Cedric Bixler Zavala's legendary howl sound rather conceited and weak. It all seems hideously ironic especially when he sings: "...and all but one of my ideas were stolen..." on 'My Fundamental Flaw'.
Despite much of their sound being borrowed from At The Drive-In, Jetplane Landing are hard to fault, and besides they couldn't have chosen a better band to imitate. 'Lights Out' is built on the dirtiest riff imaginable and although their sound sometimes veers towards garage rock not post-hardcore, it is intense and still retains the political intelligence that makes hardcore music credible. The excellent 'Acrimony' and 'An Upheaval' are grin-inducing slabs of homegrown rock, and sound just as good on tape as they do live. Either of JL's full length albums are to be recommended, but 'Els Quatre Gats' does not compare, however it remains a worthy release for completists and fans interested in seeing how their sound has developed and matured.
