EP by PERSONNEL (ddd045)
recorded in 2 hours in reading on a sunday afternoon last summer, personnel's debut ep chronicles the drab minutiae of modern britain both at home and in public - of shared habitats simultaneously filling and emptying with unwanted gadgets, of dreary shopping centres populated by peoploids jacked up on red-top hysteria. set to stark, distortion-less grooves, the music is brittle but not joyless, simple but not stupid. self-released by the band in association with doubledotdash!?. 295 copies
