In yer face post-punk from Bristolís Lice with this collection of two previously
released EPs on Joe ďIdlesĒ Talbotís Balley Records. The material has circulated
through the bandís live sets in the last few years and found its way onto record at
last. They sound somewhere between The Fall and Public Image Ltd. to these ears, and
pack in some provocative lyrics and super riffs to boot.

Bristol's Lice are the first signing to Balley Records -- the label run by IDLES' Joe
Talbot. Drawing influence from an abrasive clutch of early post-punk groups such as
The Fall, Psychic TV, Pere Ubu, and PIL, Lice's lyrics deal with subjects such as
xenophobia and misogyny through first-person monologues and short-stories (designed
to confront listeners with their own hateful impulses and biases). Originally released
as two limited-edition CD EPs, this "early years" collection features the songs that
have comprised their live set from 2016 to 2018, having been honed, changed, and
finally completed. "unmissable: Lice play rockabilly hysteria at an unsustainable pace
that collapses deliciously into swampy exhaustion." --The Guardian CD version includes
four bonus tracks.
