Could This Be Any Less Attractive?

Who fancies this tonight? I'm always up for "skeletal, clunk-punk clatter", personally. Is it possible that there is a band somewhere with a name that's worse than Wet Dog? Actually, I'll answer my own question. "Yes, LiS, there is! And, what's more, they're on the same bill. May I introduce No Bra?"

No Bra: not enjoying the support they once were. I'm amazed that they're still together etcetc...

WETDOG ALBUM LAUNCH – THURS. 17TH JULY 2008
CATCH, 22 KINGSLAND RD. LONDON E2

LIVE: WETDOG, ELECTRICITY IN OUR HOMES, NO BRA, CAPTAIN BLOOD BLOOD AND THE SEA DOGS

DEBUT ALBUM – ‘ENTERPRISE REVERSAL’
RELEASED ON ANGULAR RECORDINGS – 21ST JULY 2008

WETDOG celebrate the release of their debut album ‘Enterprise Reversal’ on Angular Recordings with a London show at Catch on Thursday the 17th of July 2008.

The London three piece line up alongside ELECTRICITY IN OUR HOMES, NO BRA and CAPTAIN BLOOD BLOOD AND THE SEA DOGS.

‘Enterprise Reversal’ ‘Enterprise Reversal’, released on CD and vinyl, was recorded over the last few months and features an astonishing twenty one tracks, clocking in at just forty five minutes, including forthcoming single ‘Alibi’.

Formed a couple of years ago with a line up of Rivka Gillieron (vocals & guitar), Billy Easter (bass) and Sarah Datblygu (drums), WETDOG have toured with the likes of Pete and the Pirates, The Long Blondes, Good Shoes, Subway Sect and The Gossip. Counting Geoff Travis and John Kennedy amongst their fans, they’ve invariably been likened to the Raincoats, Slits, Fall and Young Marble Giants, but their skeletal, clunk-punk clatter doesn't really sound like anything else around.

I quite like Wet Dog. But to describe 21 tracks as "astonishing" is like saying that the CD weighs in at a "f#cking remarkable" 102 grams.

Just so you know, No Bra doesn't wear a bra during her shows, in case the band title doesn't make that clear.
