Propelled by an inane marketing campaign, Manchester's
Wu Lyf (an acronym for the pathetically childish expression
"World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation"), whose members
(vocalist and keyboardist Ellery Roberts,
guitarist Evans Kati,
bassist Tom McClung and drummer Joe Manning)
hid behind ridiculously old-fashioned nicknames,
delivered unfinished rock songs on
Go Tell Fire to the Mountain (LYF, 2011) .
However, the coarse vocals were indeed impressive (at least range-wise)
and the arrangements shone with a great variety of rhythms and instrumental ideas.
When these elements coalesce, one gets the rabid and tribal Concrete Gold
and Spitting Blood.
The band rarely intones a catchy refrain, but, when it does, it is usually
within a disorienting context:
We Bros sounds like a deconstruction of a U2 anthem.
The prolonged agony of Heavy Pop, with its booming ambience, might just
have coined a new genre of rock music.
