the red daggers

Peter McNestry also features as part of the Red Daggers who’ve a new 6 track EP set just out entitled ‘early grave’ from off which the opening title track has been casting long shadows around our listening gaff. Steeled in an austere chill and ghosted in a darkly grooved post punk edginess that sounds as though its fallen from a Peel radio transmission c. 1980, the hollowing ‘early grave’ is icily petrified in a doomy toning the kind of which imagines Joy Division refracted through the sinister eye of a ‘mask’ era Bauhaus. All said we suggest you fast track to the end grooving ‘the corridor’, with its hints of a youthful Sisters of Mercy and the March Violets playing trick or treat amid its sparsely fragile framing, there’s a paranoiac disturbia unfolding within.
