Eddy Current Suppression Ring - So Many Things
‰ÛÏA document of four dudes having a good time over the course of six years-- teases out the Australian punk-loving rock band's trajectory through B-sides and singles.‰ - PitchforkåÊ
They‰۪ve drawn comparisons to Wire, Can, The Fall, Fugazi and The Stooges. They have a singer who wears black gloves to overcome stage fright. They won the $30,000 Australian Music Prize for their 2008 album Primary Colours‰ÛÓthen recorded the next one themselves in a few hours in their practice space and spent the dough on a photo shoot for the album cover. They do not care about you and your expectations. You could call them ‰ÛÏfiercely independent‰ but they don‰۪t seem fierce at all. Quietly, and definitely on their own terms, Eddy Current Suppression Ring has become a force in underground music.
Now, after three albums, it‰۪s time for a compilation of singles tracks, demos and other stuff they had lying round. Turns out there was lots to choose from‰ÛÓand even after trimming, they ended up with a double album. Goner Records is happy to provide So Many Things.
