THE LITTLEST ALBUM: Various Artists


You learn to expect the unexpected whenever Glasgow punks, THE PLIMPTONS or even just any of their constituent parts are involved.

Which is why I was not in the least bit surprised to read about a forthcoming 7″ vinyl ALBUM, featuring twelve bands, each supplying a track with a duration of no more than 70 seconds! Of course, THE PLIMPTONS are featured as are offshoots, GUMS! and COLIN’S GODSON – all of which have been reviewed on LOUD HORIZON in the past few months.

There are some real little gems on this one – in fact there isn’t one bad track (but even if there were, you wouldn’t have to suffer it too long would you?) but as a long-standing fan of THE MURDERBURGERS (partly because of their Lillingtons / Teenage Bottlerocket similarity) I am particularly pleased to see them here.

And of course there are going to be a few pleasant surprises in such a frenetic and packed release – for me it’s THE PARAFINNS with all the electronic blips and bleeps of ‘Backwater.PULSAR take this electronic theme and twist it with a sort of Country and Western Booty Rap, which kind of sums up the whole project!

And there’s got to be a special mention for a band I’d never heard of before, despite the Glasgow links – ATOMGEVITTER. Their hardcore  contribution ‘4298 Thrash Attack‘ takes me back to the days when the best band in the world, Bristol’s  Five Knuckle, used to grace the stages around the city in the early part of the century.

Obviously I’ve missed mentioning a few bands – no offence intended – but you can listen to them all below, and hopefully show your support for an innovative project by pre-ordering a copy of the vinyl 7″ which is available for £5, including p&p!

Can’t say fairer than that!
