Alarm Bells - Cocoons

We've seen various ex-members of Dananananaykroyd around and about since their last gig just over a year ago but Alarm Bells are that band's last lineup's rump, four thereof crucially including leadish guitarist David Roy and secondary singer/loon John Baillie Jnr. It might not be entirely surprising to find that after a corroding synth intro it launches into the kind of post-hardcore that can't get its own bearings half the time, falling down stairs and collapsing over itself, driving half-formed melodies and awkward time signatures into brick walls and turning the remnants inside out like a Scottish Mission Of Burma set to spin cycle, this time incorporating computer sounds. The video is something of a Lawnmower Man headfuck.
