The Denton, Texas No Wave scene is insanely prolific and also frighteningly good and getting better with every release. Bukkake Moms shares members with both Flesh Narc and the Gay Cum Daddies, and with so much going on, this album nearly slipped through the cracks - which would be a terrible crime. With "Raisins" this crew have created an album that could stand proudly next to anything by noise-rock legends like US Maple, Trumans Water, Dead C, or Pussy Galore. You'll hear hints of any or all of those influences in these epic songs, but they are also absolutely packed with unique ideas and inspiration of their own.

my dear Agnes, have you also been enjoying the silence of not having the kids around too? I know nigels still here but he barely counts.
we get to watch the chase and hold hands and not be interrupted by "hey can you sign this permission slip for school camp?"
or "hey when are you guys gonna start dinner it's almost 10"
or "dad the interents shat out again" they were never keen to sit with us and watch babe in the big city on VHS, the way it's MEANT to be watched with us, so why try anymore? KENNY CHARLTON!

Confident this will be my album of the year. Chilling, funky, mind-expanding, confrontational, soulful, danceable, terrifying. It reminds me, bizarrely, of MSP's 'The Holy Bible'. Like THB it doesn't shy away from the filth and evil of history. Unlike THB it's completely in earnest. Put it on headphones, listen to it all, don't look away, be educated, this is our world.
