The Horrors EP Review

by Eric Bodrero

The Horrors have seemingly created a unique style of music, or is it just the distinctive vocal style of frontman Faris Badwan? Yeah, that's probably it. London's The Horrors have created a grubby, gritty type of dark punk rock that's immediately catchy, but can become diluted with a nice big dose of campy, which I suppose is true about all punk rock? Regardless, this five song EP catches the essence of the Horrors perfectly, and showcases their, um, talents nicely. Looking like the Cure and sounding like early Ramones, the Horrors have captured a lot of attention with their unique sound.

"Sheena is a Parasite" and "Jack the Ripper" are absolutely the highlights of this EP, which could have easily been found on a Cramps album. With barely intelligible vocals and grindingly harsh yet imposingly striking guitar riffs, this is the Horrors sound in a nutshell. Go for it if you like the Cramps, Screaming Lord Sutch, or Joe Meek.
