Buzz Or Howl / Good Grief- Split 7”. Here we have two of the finest bands in the UK right now on this limited split 7”! Whilst the name Buzz Or Howl is a new one, the band feature ex members of Drive and Jailcell Recipes and the two songs featured on this split 7” mark the bands long anticipated vinyl debut! Buzz Or Howl follows a melodic and poppy path with "Fuel" being quite a beefy and energetic tune. Their second track "Pills and Work" has a bit more of a fuzzed up and varied sound that has me thinking of Dinosaur Jr. a bit as it has that beautifully warm, fuzzed out quality that J Mascis uses perfectly. Good Grief also hail from Liverpool and feature ex Flamingo 50, Crocodile God and The 255s and weigh in with two cracking songs on the flipside. They have a laid back, melodic poppy approach to punk rock, coming across a bit like Samiam on "You've Got Codes" and tag on a cover of J Church's "The Track" that has hints of Husker Du. The latter track features some guest female vocals as well, which add an extra pleasing dimension to the band's sound. Import from the UK.
