Brighton’s Blood Red Shoes might well be a boy/girl two-piece with a colour in their name, but don’t expect any of that minimalist retro-garage blues racket round here. Their third single for micro label Try Harder is instead a white knuckle mix of electric shock guitars and falling-down-a-hill drumming that owes a debt to the glorious golden age of riot grrrl - a time deep in the mists of the 1990s when, for about two weeks, rock took an oestrogen overdose and got a Kill Bill-style girlie ass-whupping (until Nina from The Cardigans came along and ruined it by looking fluffy). It’s limited to 1,000 copies on hand-numbered vinyl and we’ve already got one, so you’d better move quick.
