Track Of The Day :: The Blinders - Swine
Words: Linn Branson
Doncaster three-piece - now based in Manchester - The Blinders, cut a blinder of a debut single in the explosive three minutes that make up 'Swine', released last Friday (October 28) via Rock Art Records.
Following up their 'Hidden Horror Dance' EP from earlier this year, the trio - Thomas Haywood (vocals/guitar), Charlie McGough (bass), Matt Neale (drums/ percussion) - worked with renowned' producer Gavin Monaghan at his Magic Garden Studio in Wolverhampton on 'Swine'. Imbued with a ferocious, visceral punk rock energy that is as in-your-face as you could get, the track is dealt a further winning hand by a liberal dose of Yorkshire swagger by Haywood.
The Blinders play Sound Control, Manchester on November 6, followed by The Rocking Chair in Sheffield on November 19.
