Gosh! Don’t you just love this hYpeRActiVe kids on blue Smarties power-pop punk? In a week that sees Nestle reveal they are to withdraw Blue Smarties as they cannot find a natural colouring alternative that doesn’t induce hyperactivity in the kids, this cut of aceness from Brighton’s Blood Red Shoes is another
assertive guitar and percussion only rip through the gut of conventionality and the belly of all things bland. Given the title, A.D.H.D, you get what you expect. Frantic spiky guitar hooks crashing through a wash of cymbals and the girliest of girl vocals come the breakdown: ‘I’m so, i'm so distracted’. Unlike the
disorder, this is a cohesive effort that holds together and secures the attention of all those who are suckers for Be Your Own Pet/ Bearsuit chunks of infectious brilliance.
