Avis sur l’album

In the last couple of years, Working for a Nuclear Free City has spread like a mushroom cloud over Britain, raining down a magnificent musical melange across the scene. Hailing from Manchester, the group draw much of their inspiration from both the old baggy and grebo scenes.

Their numbers sport the insouciant pop sensibilities of Jesus Jones, the rabble-rousing qualities of Ned's Atomic Dustbin, the abandon of New Fast Automatic Daffodils, as well as the overwhelming thrill of the Stone Roses. But that's just for openers, because various post-punks, New Romantics, Krautrockers, hard rockers, space rockers, and dream-poppers, all leave their mark as well. The epic "England, Pt. 2" is WFANFC's epiphany, a brilliant musical journey through myriad genres and time, folding in elements of British Invasion, '70s rock, post-punk, baggy, electronica, space rock, and even Afro-beat. It's a fabulous variation of "England" itself, a number which drives New Order straight into billowing soundscape territory. The group pays homage to New Order's predecessor Joy Division on "Asleep at the Wheel" and "Donkey." The former subtly takes Joy Division's sound and makes it as dreamily joyful as their moniker, the latter answers the question what if acid had been Ian Curtis' drug of choice instead of heroin? The equally hard-rocking jam "Eighty Eight" sounds like the evil child of the Velvet Underground and the Stooges. And that's what makes WFANFC so amazing, they can crash and wallop as well as any classic rocker wannabes, then turn around and deliver a perfect dream pop number like "Stone Cold," soar skyward on '60s styled space rock wings of "So," zoom off into the darkwave of "Rocket," or even flit through the haze of the new wave/New Romantic with "The Tree." And all the while they still sound like nothing else out there but themselves. Which is why the group's self-titled, 2006 debut album was a revelation, and their follow-up Rocket, Rovi

Manchester, U.K. outfit Working for a Nuclear Free City began as the studio project of Phil Kay (production, keyboards, vocals) and Gary McLure (guitars).

Showcasing a hypnotic assortment of rock and electronic music accompanied by layers of soft vocals, the recorded efforts include a self-titled...
