Time marches ever onwards as do new tracks by the English agit-rock trio The Bordellos, initially introduced in 2014.
Released on the 3rd was their latest EP – The Bordello underground tape Vol 4. (available on bandcamp).
The Bordellos are forever surfacing with new ideas to consider the world around, the vast majority of which are never committed to anything than live one off performance and to be lost in the winds of time for the audience who attended. It is always a pleasure to scratch the surface of what there is available to hear of a band if you lived in St. Helens – England, you could also catch in their practice studio with the songs that never surface from that space.
I remain convinced The Bordellos do not curate their material for their own aggrandisement, rather than which they scooped together they personally enjoyed and thus we find the latest EP and from the four track release the opener Bring Me The Disco King. A track which teases the audience of unfulfilled promissory notes of a debt due. Instead of putting on sequinned trousers the listener finds themselves searching for attire as the lead mourner slowly striding ahead of the hearse and reaching for maximum bass boost.
The one word ‘Dance’ repeated thrice can not help but take the listener to Ian Curtis, though The Bordellos use this reference merely as a marker of their reference point, not as a pivot.
