The Suburban Homes - D.I.Y.
Today sees a band from Crawley, West Sussex ("in the shadow of Gatwick Airport") who are set on confronting the mediocrity and hypocrisy of 21st Century living. The Suburban Homes decided that a good way to alleviate boredom was to get off their arses and record a few songs and so August 2014 saw the release of their debut single, The Suburban Home ep. It came out on Market Square Recordings, limited to 300 copies each of which contained a piece of Izal toilet paper. Thanks to the wonders of the internet you can find the ep here : http://marketsquarerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/the-suburban-homes-the-suburban-home-e-p .
With a sound reminiscent of all your favourite lo-fi, post punk bands from yesteryear they aren't afraid to give a lyrical kicking to middle class pricks or pseudo-intellectuals or anyone else who might give them cause to vent their spleen. It's easier than 1-2-3, It's easier than ABC, you can do it yourself......this is track 3 on the ep, it's a call for creativity, it's called D.I.Y, it's a corker, Lend it your ears......
