Tracklist: The Victorian English Gentlemens Club - A Conversation

Ah, ver TVEGC. Cardiff's most abtruse trio have promised May's third album Bag Of Meat will be heavier, darker and more industrial, citing Wire's 154, Liars, Grinderman, PiL's Flowers Of Romance, Godflesh and, um, Paul Daniels (well, there is a track called Card Trick With A Chimp) as influences and claiming songs about "Africa, pissing in the snow, car crashes and cutting off heads." This is regards the latter, a conversation pre-execution that sounds like it's been ripped from the power supply of the haunted fairground as an articulated lorry hurtles out of control through the rusty gates, guitar and mandolin heavily treated, never quite being able to ascertain 100% which one is Adam and which Louise of the vocals. Plus, stylophone outro.
