In the Post #85: The Cribs – Chi-Town

By on Tuesday, 21st February 2012 at 12:00 pm

The three noisy sons of Wakefield who comprise the Cribs are back with a new album entitled ‘In the Belly of the Brazen Bull’ in May. By way of appetiser, Zane Lowe favourite ‘Chi-Town’ is available to stream in advance and as a free download. Despite being Yorkshire lads, the Jarmans seem to know their way around the Windy City, with a particular fondness for the suburb of Logan Square. In actual fact, this shouty slice of neo-punk has “Suburban USA” written right through it like a watermark.

Rough as sandpaper, all clanging drums and wrung-out guitars, it carries the ultimate rock signature in the engineering credit of ATP favourite Steve Albini, the man who, amongst many prolific collaborations, finally managed to do justice to Kurt Cobain’s sub-surface angst with his primal recording techniques on Nirvana‘s ‘In Utero’. Albini undertakes a similar public duty here; it’s difficult to imagine a rawer recording of this straight-forward song, and in its simplicity lies its power. Shorn of Johnny Marr, the band are free to ply a simpler, more direct sound: the perfect anti-Morrissey. If the rest of the album sounds like this, fans of loud guitars and modern punk rock are in for a real treat.

The Cribs’ next album, ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’, will be released on the 7th of May on Wichita Recordings. They have also announced a UK tour for May (tickets on sale now) with dates as follows:

Monday 7th May 2012 – Nottingham Rock City
Tuesday 8th May 2012 – London Troxy
Wednesday 9th May 2012 – Bristol O2 Academy
Friday 11th May 2012 – Glasgow Barrowlands
Saturday 12th May 2012 – Manchester Academy
Sunday 13th May 2012 – Eastbourne Winter Gardens
