Down I Go: You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You

Album Review

Eccentric noise from resurgent skronk merchants

Four years on from their final release and apparent disintegration, one of the UK’s most brilliant but underrated bands are back to mess with our heads.

Down I Go’s trademark swivel-eyed amalgam of lurching, dissonant hardcore, quirky strings and brass and insidious, out-of-focus melodies was always too smart and sassy to connect with the generic rock populace, but from the opening clatter of Mother In The Pen to the wonky thump of The Sending, they remain a band with bounteous charm and millions of deranged but compelling ideas.
