Beat Happening: Look Around

Album Review

Corking anthology from the US cult heroes.

There are few bands more deserving of the DIY epithet than Beat Happening. Formed in Washington in 1982, the trio – led by fey frontman Calvin Johnson – released five albums of scratchy post-punk over a decade, their faux-naïf primitivism achieved without the use of a bass and with members regularly swapping instruments.
