Ten City Nation
time around Bury St Edmunds punkers Ten City Nation have made an visceral scouring pad of an album. The Suffolk band were influenced by the Queens of The Stone Age and The Stooges in their first incarnation as the briefly feted Miss Black America but At The Still Point is noticeably more hardcore.
Brutal, often minimalist riffs recall the toughest moments of US pioneers like Fugazi and Pavement, while lyrically this angry trio veer between optimism, nihilism and despair.
