CAREFUL - Drunk Dial #7 {Drunk Dial} This is the new project of Dave Williams who was previously in CRUSADES and had a stint in the STEVE ADAMYK BAND. As always with these neat, usually intoxicated-while-recording 7”s, you get an original and a cover. The original, ‘Comeuppance’ is a surprisingly breezy, rocking semi-acoustic strum in the mould of LEMONHEADS or MOVING TARGETS. There’s some bright keyboard runs, solid drumming to keep the track pushing along and a vocal that’s soaring. Killer track - an album is needed! The cover is a take on ‘Ingrown’ by Sydney band, SMUDGE - and it’s something that could’ve fitted on ‘It’s A Shame About Ray’ without a problem. There’s some incendiary guitar work going on under the acoustics and a vocal that Dando would probably sell a tonsil for these days. A killer single that’s driven by Power Pop laced with laconic melodic Indie-Punk muscle. As said, we really need an album. (28.08.21)
