46 Perfect Pussy: Say Yes to Love

Ha! And you thought Fucked Up were difficult to Google! Try searching for this band on your work’s computer! Actually, don’t- I searched for their Twitter account and… saw… things… ‘Say Yes to Love’ is a fantastically abrasive and wonderfully succinct album (8 tracks, 23 minutes, do records really need to be any longer?) that sounds like the most insane chaos you can imagine yet it’s expertly controlled. It seems almost like every instrument is each a playing a different song and trying its absolute hardest to make the case for their’s being the central theme. Meredith Graves lyrics are so overwhelmed by the racous noise the band are making that they’re often ineligible, only occasionally on songs like Interference Fits do they break through and you can better appreciate their snide and caustic brilliance (‘And then my friends began to fall in love/First with themselves and then with each other/I met my despair at midday light/And it was amazing, and I almost cried’). Wonderful.

A logo! I do love it when a band takes the time to create a logo, we could be looking at the next Van Halen here, or even better if Perfect Pussy were introduced as one of the newest Avengers (I’ll let you decide what their power would be). I’m off to get it tattooed.

4/5
