ANIMALS & MEN -Revel in the Static CD (Messthetics #201A)

ANIMALS & MEN -Revel in the Static CD
(Messthetics #201A) demos and singles 1979-1983
Terrific girl-vocal D.I.Y./ postpunk from the West Country (Somerset, UK). Unmannered vocals, grinding minimal instrumentals and a pound-ing/tribal/ BoDiddley backbeat.

"A surefire fix for fans of Kleenex and Delta 5…" - J. Edward Keyes, Magnet
"A witch's brew of The Vaselines, surf and 60’s garage… The Fuzzbox-esque half sweet, half swaggering 'It's Hip' and surfy 'The Man with the Spiked-Toed Shoes' could have been one of Rough Trade's finest hours." - Ed Zed, Rock Bottom

And from back in the day...
"'Shell Shock'…is hypnotic, dark and intense. Nearest comparison (intended as a rough guide, not to define/confine) might be Velvet Underground." NME, 1980. "[The Terraplanes] deserve to be HUGE" - Mick Mercer, Zig Zag 1981 Messthetics' first "solo" act re-emerges with vastly-improved sound and four songs from a hitherto lost 1979 session that rank with their very best, making for well over an hour of music. 12-page booklet with extensive notes, new photos and A+M ephemera, plus a traditional (and extremely handsome) H2D cover with a real photo. $11.00 - includes live 1981 video of "Evil Going On."

'Terraplane Fixation'
