Apple Shift Seven
added: 21 Sep 2012
// release date: 24 Sep 2012 // label: Trash Tune
reviewer: Rob Barnett
Hold on tight for a white-knuckle punk jamboree. Uber Kerblammo is packed with classic punk riffs, rammed full of trademark whimsical lyrical delights. Tales of ladies with lightsabers, nutters without napkins, and the merits of niceness, are delivered with typical sardonic mayhem.
The sinister opener Click Click is all menace, impossible drum rolls and chain saws. Random Reset is a glam trash treasure, and the insanely wonderful Flip Flops will leave you stunned.
Standout tracks Living on the Edge, Those That Do, Trying to be Nice and the moving epic Sparrowhawk set them head and shoulders above their genre and shows the depth of song-craft they can effortlessly delve into at will.
Darker than the brilliant lunacy of Diseasy Living, their second album sees them crank up the dirt and crank up the brilliance without losing their innocent sense of fun. It’s a difficult balance to pull off, and they do it like seasoned pioneers. They are far more than a punk trio – they are the mighty Apple Shift Seven - and they have produced another cracking album.
