Ex Models / The Seconds
“Split”
(My Pal God Records)

Four ‘songs’ split in half by two ‘bands’ that split a mediocre idea: let’s remake a style of ‘music’ that was never really popular, and doesn’t require too much talent. Post post ‘no wave’ with a tendency to meander aimlessly, pointlessly and endlessly. Thankfully this is ‘short’, so the torture of actually having to sit through an album’s worth of ass-wipings such as these is avoided. Remedial lyrics, repetitive strums and monotonous beats all converge within. What can be said for bands with the ability to record nothing tangible? ‘Stop wasting people’s time’ sounds good.
