Abattoir Blues

Picture by Charlotte Patmore

We first came across this thug-pop five piece from Brighton early in 2014 when we featured their first track 'Still Here' on our singles club. We invited them to appear at our fourth birthday party and found ourselves so enamoured that we offered to put them out on 12" as part of our compilation Family Portrait pt. II with Bruising, Fruit Bomb and Living Hour.

They have since gone on to release a 7" single with Cannibal Hyms, played with Wolf Alice at o2 forum and been described by the Guardian as "the Stone Roses, Spiritualized and the Sex Pistols in a monster truck pile-up" - I think they meant that as a compliment.

FUN FACT: The band originally featured Gus from The Magic Gang on drums and Jack from Birdskulls on guitar and these two original members feature in illustrated form on the cover of Family Portrait pt. II.
