    Flash Bang Band are a bunch from Brighton that I first covered waaaaay back in my auspicious role with what-was-then Artrocker.com. I’m sad to say that I’ve not kept up with their developments too much since, despite having liked to have… Once I initially cover a band it can become difficult to know which updates to keep up with and which to promote and…. aye.

    This track caught me surprise. Starting out with elements of the wonderfully soft-sung Iain Archer, coupled with the illustrious Thom Yorke… then shifting to something more akin to Weezer, or the rougher and more recent Dinosaur Pile Up.

    They’re on tour soon. Go find them.

    “I was reading this thing that I might’ve just imagined about scientists constructing sperm from human bone marrow that would, ultimately, render the male genitalia completely useless as a reproductive organ”, explains vocalist Michael M. “I think it might’ve been in an issue of TV Quick. So we wrote the song about how redundant the male would become, unable to compete with artificial counterparts, reducing the flesh penis to a cozy piece of old world technology like a Nokia from the 90s, but veiny. It’s not so much a warning as an undermining of patriarchal ideas, and also we released it on 7″ and that’s a wee laugh.”

    What else can be said? Also on 7″
