I've got a lot of stuff up around the web today, so I thought I'd double up for today with this review of Eddy Current Suppression Ring's career-spanning singles compilation So Many Thing...a total blast and out now on Goner.
Here's my review from Blurt
Eddy Current Suppression Ring
So Many Things
This collection of singles and compilation tracks covers pretty much the entirety of Eddy Current Suppression Ring from their raucous, first-ever single "Get Up Morning" to the dissolute fade-out of last year's "Rush to Relax." Regardless of vintage, it's all fine, loosely constructed punk rock, centered around Brendan Suppression's yowling, drawling, let-it-all-hang-out vocal delivery, but beefed up considerably by the headlong, brutally simple but excellent playing. Iggy Pop is the patron saint of this sort of thing, but you'll also hear shades of the Fall, Radio Birdman and the Troggs.
