When a band accurately describes themselves as ‘low rent caveman hate music’, there’s not much left for the reviewer to say. Add to that the opening lyrics on their debut album, surely a statement of intent: “I hate your car, I hate your shoes, I hate your pets, I hate your face. 10 million tons of shit. You’re shit.” Welcome, friends, to the ugly/beautiful world of Rainbow Grave.

I’ll spare you the line-up breakdown, suffice to say these ageing bastards have paid their dues and now it’s our turn to suffer for their art. No You is bleak, grinding, nihilistic and absolutely glorious; six tracks of huge, cathartic guitar abuse and gleeful hatred. Groovy hate-fuck album of the year.
