Three Dimensional Tanx shatter the third wall, as well as eardrums, with their new single, ‘Son Of Go’ which provides us a with a sequel to the blood vessel bursting single ‘I Am Go’ from a couple of years ago. Providing a sense of unity through their work this new song carries on their trademark garage-punk whirlwind as we approach the release of their second album, Attack.
‘Son Of Go’ sees shards of fuzzy guitar clutter our worldview, it’s knees up time. It’s a riff familiar from The Fall in their rockabilly days, let’s say ‘Cruisers Creek’ -ish. Fairground organ parps as hands clap. And then just as you’re getting into the swing of things it’s over. At under 2 minutes this reinforces the band Wire-esque brevity, jutting roughly against the psych longueurs of five-minute intros. ‘Son Of Go’ comes from the corner of the ring throwing punches.
Frontman Spacey hollers and whispers, all breathy performance as usual. He sings of “2-25s” and “lies”, sounding ebullient and whimsical.
This is band of big sounds and big personalities… the Attack is coming in August!!
“Make it all up as you go along, baby”
