New Art Riot



New Art Riot Review
Publication: NME
Date: Saturday 4th August 1990
Writer: Black Francis & Stephen Dalton


Amphetamine guitars skidding across jagged MC4-style melodies, a late '70's up-against-it stance and sloganeering sleeve. Imagine Sham 69 with balls and brains.

Black Francis: Yeah, a kinda socialist punk rock band. Which really bums me off usually, just the look, but it sounds pretty good. A little on the vague side, seems like they could be really good if they had the right song. It's nice because it wasn't modern-sounding, but it just didn't suck me in.
