LaFaro - Public Relations Exercise split single

LaFaro have a lot of energy. "Scott" they're contribution to the split is a fine, pounding piece of noisy punk rock. It has that DC dynamism of pulling things back then letting it all go and slamming the sound right at the back of the head with a brick when you aren't looking.

Public Relations Exercise are certainly tight as fuck as a band, with complicated rhythms and guitar lines breaking back and forth, the song moving in odd mannerisms, as the vocalist contorts his singing style from all out screaming to calm. There is something of theearly At the Drive-In to their style, but not really.


Reviews

The crucial failing of many a split single is when one of the acts dramatically outshines the other. Thankfully in this case we have on our hands two acts from the very top draw who are happy to play out a hugely entertaining high scoring draw. Kicking off proceedings are Public Relations Exercise, a young band who have already toured with some of the UK's biggest names. On 'Subteniente' they brilliantly marry off kilter guitar rhythms with the renowned abrasive DC sound, whilst Belfast's Lafaro quickly follow suit with the lengthy 'Scott', a similarly fantastic slab of discordant noise.

This is an all too rare release that brings together two of the UK's best kept secrets, but on this wonderful evidence, that description won't hold for too much longer.

Rating: 5/5 by Dan Jones

We got some interesting 7"'s in on Field Records. You may remember the Sunnyvale Noise Sub Element CD's we had in some time back?? This LAFARO / PUBLIC RELATIONS EXERCISE split 7" is some decent old school noise rock along the lines of Shellac and Rodan. The female/male vocal thing they have going on is a bit interesting 'n all.

Rough Trade

 

LaFaro have a lot of energy. They are kind of reminiscent of some of the DC hardcore bands, only a bit noisier, rougher around the edges. They don't have the articulation of say Fugazi, but they have a lot of balls. Maybe a closer comparison would be the Chicago scene, Sweep the Leg Johnny spring to mind, minus the sax.

"Subteniente" by Public Relations Exercise took me a while to get into. I'm still not sure if I like it or not. There is something of early At the Drive-In to their style, but not really. I admire their strength and attitude, and they're are certainly tight as fuck as a band, with complicated rhythms and guitar lines breaking back and forth, the song moving in odd mannerisms, as the vocalist contorts his singing style from all out screaming to calm. As I listen to it now, I can feel it growing on me. You definitely have to give it a few spins, and it's the shortest song on all of these split 7"s. Don't judge it straight off. You'll be rewarded with a challenging band.
