Editors’ Notes

Future of the Left continues to deliver the post-hardcore goods on Travels With Myself and Another. On this latest outing, the guitars are bigger and meaner, more menacing and dangerous, and the band’s ferocious punch is delivered with even more vicious humor and punky spirit.  With the right kind of marketing push, these Welsh rockers — pummeling home their points on topics like consumerism, greed, and integrity with a seething rage — could be as big as, say, Rage Against the Machine. The tracks here are powerful, memorable, hooky, and clever enough that some might actually feel their frontal cortex grow as they listen. From the whiplash genius of “I Am Civil Service” to the martial seesawing of “The Hope That House Built” and the sneering “You Need Satan More Than He Needs You,” the collection is giddy with creative expression. The howling and shimmying “Chin Music,” the early-punk eruptions of “Stand By Your Manatee” and “Land of the Formers,” and the dark hilarity of “Lapsed Catholics” show a band with a deep reserve of musical skill. A minor masterpiece.

Customer Reviews

Good album.

It's fun. Kind of like a band of Oompa Loompas interpreting Jesus Lizard tunes.

Oh, for god's sake, just submit.

Their perfect balance between aggression/perfection/pop is not to be denied. I defy anyone to resist. It's as though the Supremes decided to use more distortion. But better. Much better. Ugly in all the right ways. If you doubt, see them live. It will be made clear.

Male or Female, this makes you a man

I love this band and this record. What a pleasant surprise to see the new one dropped today. I followed McClusky through their last two records and FOTL on the first, and have slowly come to realize that Falco and his cohorts are a model of masculinity. This is music to get tired of city life to, sober up, move to the country and curse enemies between your teeth while chopping lumber. These songs do not consider forgiving, although they are cordial at the grocery store. It's music that smells of garlic and mustaches. It has no room for women's talk, instead focusing on a singular vision of finding your opposition's weakness, and then driving, driving, driving until freed of detractors. Buzzing, clutter brained venom; a manly man confused by the modern world and conflicting old world standards of behavior. 4 stars seems too weak and 5 seems too immodest.

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Scrappy Welsh noise rock trio Mclusky was one of the bright spots in the British indie scene's post-Brit-pop hangover, releasing three appealingly noisy albums, 2000's My Pain and Sadness Is More Sad and Painful Than Yours, 2002's Mclusky Do Dallas, and 2005's The Difference Between Me and You Is That I'm Not on Fire, before an acrimonious split in 2005, apparently due to intra-band tensions related to an incident on the trio's 2004 American tour where the band's van and equipment were stolen.
