"Spineless Yes Men EP review July 2011"

My main memory of seeing the Spineless Yesmen live earlier on this year was less of how they remarkably powered through their set although drummer-less, and more of their enthusiastic energy and charm, and this shines through in their new EP. Fresh, fun and with a lovely rough, unpolished edge, the London-based pop-punk band fully delivered putting their heart and personality into this recently released EP.

‘Jim Almighty’ is clearly the focal-point of the EP; personal, emotional and with an incredibly catchy guitar sound, this song will stick with you for some time. This track fuses the band’s musical experiences in both punk-rock and indie, giving it an individual edge.

‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’, despite being an overdone subject-matter, is another favourite of mine that mixes up the sound a bit to keep you on your toes. From the opening drum-beat – reminiscent of New Found Glory, Sugarcult and Less than Jake – you can’t help but start moving and be drawn into the music. Spineless Yesmen don’t offer music to play in the background, they are upfront, in your face and engaging. Tommy Towers’ vocals are like punk on a stick and will soon engulf any room and hold your focus, demanding you to bop along.

I left the most humorous to last with the stick-it-to-the-man track, ‘Never Blue’. With an eye on society’s issues, they sing of injustice, bad leaders and ignorance, and tell the Chancellor of the Exchequer exactly where to go. However, while begrudging society’s problems, they bring the focus back to optimism and reliving good times at the end to create a fun, funky, upbeat song that I’d be proud to blast out the windows.

An EP for anyone who likes their music to have a spring in its step, check it out, turn it up and clear some space for bouncing around the room!

Check them out on all the appropriate social media sites - here and here – and take a look at my interview with the band.
