Writeabout' is straight in and no messin’. David Alexander’s machine gun vocals attack the media’s obsession with celebrity culture with a matrix of stabbing riffs stampeding against the brittle snap of thunderous drumming. Simon Johnson shreds the lead guitar strings like his old man, you can smell his bloodied fingers from here.
The band was formed in 2010 by drummer Lee Watkins and vocalist David Alexander (. David Burke), with guitarist Simon Johnson; they were joined in 2012 by bassist Jules Cooper. The band released their first video Stalker in 2011, followed by Channel Swimmer in 2012 and Talent in 2013, the same year as their debut 7" single Writeabout/Steve, released on Podrophenia Records.

Although impossible to pigeon-hole into any one genre, the impressive songs that are blasted out by this band are punk-infused reminders that real music is not dead. In other words, both sides of this release are fantastically unique – an exciting cacophony of sound that should not pass you by.
