The Computers debut album imminent

From Exeter’s very own tight-knit and fertile punk scene, The Computers return in May with This Is The Computers, their debut full-length album for One Little Indian Records. Recorded in four short days in the Californian home of John ‘Speedo’ Reis, more of whom in a minute, it was recorded live, to tape. That means no overdubs. No computers were involved (irony). There were no tweaks, corrections or auto-tuning – this is the real deal, baby. Warts and all, as Lemmy would say.

From the opening 121 seconds of clatter of ‘Where Do I Fit In?’ through the beautiful thrusting discordance of ‘Hot Damoclese’ to the hellacious 12-bar strut of ‘The Queen In 3D’, it is apparent that this is a debut that leaves you no room to catch your breath. It is punk that dares to have a swing in its step; hardcore that knows all the Northern Soul moves. There is no ambiguity or airs of pretension here. The Computers play sartorially-snappy supersonic rhythm and blues with larynx-shredding vocals.

Having recently toured with Gay for Johnny Depp and Alexis On Fire, the band are now looking forward to the release of their album on May 16th as well as the following gigs
