"These Cumbrians do journeyman punk rock very capably indeed..."
Considering this is their debut album, these Cumbrians do journeyman punk rock very capably indeed. Rousing highlight ‘Happiness Is A Dying Art’ will doubtless be the soundtrack to many a boozy, sentimental night, while ‘Shit Happens’ is a savvy three-minute punk anthem that belies their tender years. Luckily, there are many more like it that balance out the likes of aimless ballad ‘I’m Drowning Not Waving’ and all in all, this lively trio couldn’t have wished for a much more solid base to build upon. Even if they do sound like they’ve been doing this for years already.
