Close Lobsters at porky prime cuts

MEANWHILE, A BRIEF mention for a Close Lobsters single (as Porky tends not to bother with singles), the two-trackKunstwerk In Spacetime EP (Shelflife records), on glorious 70-gram maroon vinyl.

It’s the Scottish indie bands first release in a quarter of a century, and arrived at Porky Towers, rather curiously, a couple of days after I rediscovered their two classic late-80s albums, Foxheads Stalk This Land and Headache Rhetoric.

Now Time and New York City In Space are both classic Lobsters, pop sensibilities mingling with the post-punk influences they were exposed to in the pre-C86 days; it’s the sound of Postcard Records meets The Fall.
