The Computers - This Is The Computers

The Computers - This Is The Computers Cover

This eagerly-anticipated affair is as punk rock, fun and raucous as we'd hoped...

Borne from the Exeter punk scene, rather than the US of A as their sound dictates, The Computers’ impressive debut is a riotous, riff-laden affair. Dripping with references to Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu and John ‘Speedo’ Reis’ career in general, it comes as little surprise that the Swami head honcho whisked the Devon boys off to sunny California to record under his expert tutelage. Recorded live to tape, this is raw, raucous, ferocious and boasts swaggering rock ‘n’ roll attitude in spades, topped with scrape-the-skin-off-your-throat vocals. It will make you want to shake your ass until dawn and is, quite simply, superb.
