Sceptres - Childsplay 7"
NEW. SORRY STATE RECORDS. Final 7" from this British post-punk band featuring some familiar faces.
While their earlier recordings had an upbeat, jerky sound somewhere
between X-Ray Spex and the rawer early post-punk bands, these final two
songs from the band are downbeat, dirgey, and depressing. You still get
Ralph's trademark weird guitar, but the emphasis here is on the dark
atmosphere and brooding melodies. It's a shame they're done, as these
two songs show an intriguing and unique change in direction. RIP
