Since their move to the city, the woodwose have gorged on cinema and left this gleaming carcass. Primal motorik rhythms, the rush of white noise and post – punk angles; an aural onslaught played out on homemade log synths, electrified guitars and sticks beating hell on taut animal skin.
The EP opens with motorik fuzz epic ‘Jonny Guitar Calling Gosta Berlin’, its title taken from Greta Garbo’s 1924 big screen debut The Saga of Gosta Berling. The track draws heavily on Jean-Luc Godard’s nightmarish Weekend, in which an excursion to the countryside ends in revolution , the collapse of bourgeois society and cannibalism. The circle of life.
What follows is a kitchen sink post-punk one-two in ‘Fukushima Failure’ and ‘Director’s Nostalgia’. Knotted and contagious. Snatched lyrics about nuclear disaster and barely coherent rants about art house cinema over clattering ramshackle rhythms that will lodge themselves deep in your brain long after the screen fades to black. Mark E Smith is lost in the forest and picking fights with the trees. As the credits roll we’re played out with the soundtrack to some forgotten 1970s Italian road movie in ‘Wendy’ s Road Rage'.
