The Underdog - Heathen BABY

It's a brave band that have the opening lyric of "Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough", but Heathen BABY manage to justify it through the course of this five song EP with quite a sexy swagger. This is very much a collection of 90's style groove industrial rock, all guitars and loops and big, solid drumming. Not that it sounds dated as the sound is very much 'of the now', just that it has touches of Revolting Cocks, Thrill Kill Kult, and the odd bit of Nine Inch Nails if they ever decided to get into the whole tribal drumming thing.

Stand out tracks are Dance Floor Shit, which has a hook a mile long and should get the dancefloor packed, and Remedy, which is is a sinister little psychodrama of a number that will bring back all kinds of childhood horrors to your mind.

The only thing that might be slightly off putting to some is that their Facebook 'About' bio is clearly batshit crazy, but if you can let that slide then you should be in for a treat. I know I'll be adding them to my DJ list and I look forward to seeing them impress me live.
