The Victorian English Gentlemens Club - Bag Of Meat (Album review for Buzz magazine)

Words originally for Buzz magazine and can be found in the June edition of the print magazine.

The Victorian English Gentlemens Club ****
Bag Of Meat (This Is Fake DIY)
It feels a little strange loving over a band who might well read the excited words that you scribble about them, but the third album from Cardiff's very own art-rockers really is most excellent. Energetic, intelligent, noisy, exciting, diverse and weird are just some of the words I’d use to describe it. Supplying off-kilter synth lines, satisfying guitar riffs, excellent vocals and interesting song structures – this will pleasure your ears. JM
