Reliably informed



Released: 01.09.21








The third album from North Tynesiders Segedunum Rust and their most ambitious yet, Get Chased… is the first recording since the sad passing of bass player Terry Know. Billy Parker and Paul Gallagher take on full responsibilities, and each track clings tenaciously to a guitar riff whether spiky, grungy, bluesy, spacey or folky, building around it with swirling keyboard effects which all acts as a platform for studious vocals.

They are very much fully formed songs with plenty of life advice, but never come across as preachy. This may be lo-fi, but it’s also high flying; 21st Century psychedelic alt. pop with Peter Hammill in the wing mirror and early Floyd somewhere off starboard.
