Lyrically, things are just as erratic. 'Doing Yr Dole Wrong' is a personal favourite of mine, quite possibly one of the greatest anti-love songs I've ever heard: 'There's something in the way you fuck me (kiss me!)'. Title track 'Damp Detector' meanwhile sees frontman Jay Stansfield emotively singing about an indigent woman giving blowjobs to strangers. It's all very thrilling, curiously arousing and simultaneously slightly disturbing.
The group aptly describe their sound like so: ‘we are the feeling you get when you first dip your knees into a warm bath; the exciting shudder you develop when peeing after a long and arduous bus ride.’
All in all, these guys are a bunch of absolute nutters. In other words, they possess everything I look for in my music (it helps that their music is also impressively creative, fantastically hilarious and alarmingly catchy).
Eager to get a little more intimate with the band, I decided to arrange an interview, the comical results of which can be found below...
