Statues “Terminal Breakdown” ep

After a flurry of hard to find eps and comp tracks Deranged thankfully pulls together the latest batch of STATUES material. The band that pulls together inspiration from the BUZZCOCKS and JOE JACKSON continues delivery some brilliant punkified new wave in the modern day. And there are a load of covers found amidst this collection like the POINTED STICKS, the K-TELS, and GG ALLIN. The GG ALLIN throws me until the band explains that early GG is very melodic and they are right. So this collects “Same Bodies, Same Faces” that Deranged did in 2007, “Crooked Fingers, Broken Hand” double ep that P-Trash and Plastic Idol that came out early this year, and an unreleased scorcher to make this even more collectible. The STATUES are one of my favourite bands of last year and this collection continues to showcase their song writing abilities.
