Recorded by lovably named quintet Ten No. 6 at Ty Drwg Studios, Grangetown, this debut album is a comely car crash of punk, pop, glam, and all points wherever.
Somewhat in the same caseload as Bandicoot and other acts currently pillaging and plundering the Seventies like post-paisley Vikings on biker acid, coming across like long-lost power-pop demos by some wannabe RAK or BOMP! Signing circa 1975. Producer Frank Naughton captures the spirit of these retro-bates with skill, rendering an authentic Slik-meets-Arrows sub-gloss, ‘One More Time’ fabulous for its sheer backward-glancing impudence and indulgence. Put it this way: if you’d heard ‘One More Time’ way back in the day you’d have been pumping its volume hourly for weeks. With this sort of quack quantum weirdness, Ten No. 6 sweeps us back to a youth misspent hunting down obscure American indie power pop like The Marbles, whose melodious, innocent noiz they also recall. All brilliance, but if you’re into Nordic death metal my sage advice would be to pass…
