Part Chimp frontman Tim Cedar describes their fifth album Drool as “slobbering, dribbling stupidity and salaciousness”, and I’d happily leave the review right there. Part Chimp are the loudest, greatest, fucked-up-est band most of you have never heard of. They consciously eschew evolution in favour of streamlining their sound into a turbocharged fucking beast.

Drool does everything you hope and expect, starting with the lumbering, downtuned Back From The Dead and finishing 40 minutes later with the even more lumbering, downtuned Worms. In between there are two bassists, a guest vocal from Tim Farthing (formerly of Hey Colossus) and a title track that’s one of the best things they’ve ever done. Part Chimp are the only band to still make me headbang and I fucking love them.
