Ever since Donny Tourette stormed off Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 2007, the good name of punk has never been the same. Then, a decade later, LIFE came snarling out of the Humber Valley. A Picture of Good Health picks up where their debut left off; packed to the rafters with punchy, erudite, thunderous tunes measuring up the big topics along with the banal.

It’s equal parts Mark E. Smith, QOTSA, The Clash and just a tiny bit of Hull’s other fab four The Housemartins (Caravan of Love has gang vocals, okay!?). One of the only saving graces of the omnishambles of a time we live in is the emergence of bands that have something to be genuinely angry about. Few bands better epitomise that than LIFE.
