Kasms like to be categorised under a genre they invented and named 'shriekbeat'. Trouble is, shriekback sounds a lot like gothic pop-punk with elements of no-wave and art-rock. To spay is to remove the ovaries of an animal, and this beast is lacking in parts, but certainly not in balls. No matter the classification, `Male Bonding' is catchy and bruising and the Siouxsie-esque shriek is suitably banshee-like in places. `Bone You' and `Trenchfoot' are equally addictive, and their heavy drumming is liberally affecting. Doffing of pointy-witch cap towards a certain Mr Smith is also due throughout. Some lesser numbers (see the title track), as can be expected on a debut, dilute the listen but only from pitch black to black. At their best, and in the best possible way, Kasms are sometimes like early Yeah Yeah Yeahs covering the Cramps at their most rocking, just without the sustainability to hit those highs throughout.
