Fire Engines :: Hungry Beat (Reissue)

This week (Tuesday) Acute Records will be reissuing Fire Engines’ Hungry Beat — I hope people are paying attention. Like fellow countrymen Josef k, Fire Engines may not have lasted very long, but their influence is undeniable, and their small body of work heavily fetishized by growing legions of fans re-tracing post-punks baby steps.

RIYL: Television, Orange Juice, Josef K, early Talking Heads, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

According to the Festival blurb, they reformed at the bequest of Franz Ferdinand.\\

    NB There was a band signed to Creation Records called Meat Whiplash…who I think were pretty average if my memory serves me right. Always stuck in my mind as I loved their name, and judging from the tracks posted here they didn’t think of it.
