Brighton duo Blood Red Shoes (a homage to Ginger Rogers' haemoglobin soiled white dancing footwear) are made up of former members of Lady Muck and Cat On Form. “Stitch Me Back” is primeval, basic stuff – not White Stripesy as you’d imagine, but full of metallic clangs and subterranean rumbles. The first track and double header “Meet Me At Eight” are fractured, calculated bursts of frantic energy, aspiring to an epic format, but often shoving a couple of chords in your face with the effectiveness of a pub fight in Salford. The note that comes with this says “Beautiful and brutal...“ - s’true.
