Last featured in November with their one and only début track the English baleful-rock duo Audio Wrestling Association return with some new material.
Audio Wrestling Association
A couple of tracks surfaced this week – I sense a Fibonacci sequence gone wrong here, as, instead of 1,1,2 we find 1,2,(x)? which with some fortune perhaps means that the next number will be a four track EP coming next as Audio Wrestling Association are a duo to be taken in large quaffs.
Combinations of analogue and acoustic keys now feature in the output, which sometimes features drum kit other times not with the addition of five string bass – let me repeat that again – five string bass – how could I not ask you to be engaged with my favourite instrument with extra expression – oh and guitar and vocal.
Their decision to add more orchestration and loose the percussion in Never Letting Go is not lost as it gives the music greater journeys to travel, yet equally able to undertow the misery of the ’10s though the compositions.
Those of longer endurance will be minded to reference Ashley Reaks and if we can find these two entities on a live billing one is assured of a fleet of ambulances turning up to the venue to deal with self inflicted wounds. Music is meant to move and Audio Wrestling Association not only pay the bill they leave a hefty tip for the audience.

I have but one sadness when I was sent the introduction of Audio Wrestling Association and that is there is only one song to hear – Scratched. As you will note from the image above – a five string bass – how could I not be enamoured?
Compacting acoustic guitar with slack bass and superbly pitched half-spoken seamlessly split-vocal Scratched, which needs to be played on full volume and maximum sub-woofer to enjoy the extra string to its maximum, takes the listener on an almost four minute excoriation of the inner workings of the mind. Reflecting on broken promises, which is delivered in the bass-line, alongside the acoustic six stringer that accepts with shrugged shoulder, positing ‘such is life’ as the vocal expostulates the dichotomies. Audio Wrestling Association consists of two deft musicians able to wring the most out of the minimum and an exemplar of the adage – less is more.
With some fortune, the dearth of tracks will be quickly rectified. If perchance you happen to be in Manchester (England) and find Audio Wrestling Association on the billing – scratch any other plans you have for the evening.
