Crash from Welsh dark rockers Heavy Petting Zoo is the latest in a long line of storming singles from the Too Pure singles club. The single is much more nuanced, more complex than you'd expect from a band who share their name with the title of NOFX's sixth album. It's not the loud, raucous, straight from the gut punk rock that their name would suggest it's a growling, rumbling, menacing post punk rocker that sounds like Karen O fellating Link Wray in the Cramps kitchen.
Crash and the b-side Inherent Vice are the sound that emerges after a year locked away in a windowless cellar. It's the dark, gothic, black clad, threatening big brother of Best Coast, The Drums, Beach Fossils and the rest of the sun kissed surf pop bands that exploded last year.
