Some bands don’t mess about. Having released their debut album, Ratworld, in January of this year, Menace Beach’s fizzing, over caffeinated creativity needed another outlet. So, in-between touring with the likes of Drenge and the Cribs, and becoming one of Johnny Marr’s new favourite bands, Menace Beach found time to head into the Suburban Home studio with Hookworm’s MJ to record a brand new EP, set for release this Autumn.
The Super Transporterreum EP is a distillation of what Menace Beach have previously called their “own grubby little Ratworld”, this time with added technicolour. With band leaders Ryan and Liza’s unmistakable vocal interplay coming to the fore, their lopsided surreal and esoteric creativity means they have created a sound that is unmistakably their own.

I like Eidôlon, 3 Studies For A Portrait, Colored Fields and Metal Shells. The album has high fidelity sound, with decent definition and punchy bass. There isn't any kind of mushiness to the sound, nor any excessive treble. Sounds good loud on a quality system. CD comes packaged in a slim digipak case. Neil McCauley
