Whatever these Canadians guys secretly mix in their drinks, it seems that it brings out an endless stream of brilliant and catchy, yet distinctive songs in each of their bands SEDATIVES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND, LAST COMMUNION and MOTHER'S CHILDREN.
So here's their new combo YEAR ZERO with a debut LP that actually consists of two parts; ''Bottle Artillery'' with 7 songs recorded in 2010 and the 9 tracks session ''No Tongue for Eros'', recorded a year earlier. Packed together, they called it ''Year One'' and it sounds fierce yet grounded, relentless but positive, and so effortlessly unwavering to the very end. It is both excitingly familiar and so fresh in skill and maturity that you are unlikely to hear anything like it elsewhere currently. Pulling from the classic Power Pop leanings of the BUZZCOCKS in songs like ''Pros & Cons'', to the ragged and rapid REPLACEMENTS and mostly HÜSKER DÜ tones in the majority of the songs, right down to the influences of fellow Canadians the DOUGHBOYS or PUNCHBUGGY, this record is a tight, fuzzy underground treasure in the waiting. - P.TRASH RECORDS
