So i missed Former Bullies at YES WAY but apparently they played a stormer of a set. I've seen them before though, so it came as no great surprise to hear the kind words of some the YES WAY patrons. My annoyance at missing them was a little dampened when Andy finally handed over the copy of their 'Seasoned' cassette album that they'd given to him for me. Boy oh boy is it ever good, more than good in fact...its excellent and it has swiftly found its self jostling for position in my top 10 albums of the year. I shit you not. Here's a stab at giving you an idea of what it sounds like...errrr a Mancunian Home Blitz meets 60's Paisley-Pop and primitive K Records style Garage a la Halo Benders and maybe some Sebadoh demos in there too. I urge you to purchase it (if you don't have a tape player buy one) and if you get the chance to see 'em live you should. They have a 7" coming out on Suffering Jukebox soon, and i'm proud to announce that we'll be working together some time in the not too distant future too.
