III

Damn The Torpedoes IIIGet it

The new EP (titled ‘III’ – see what they did there? Clever, huh) incorporates both sides of the Torpedoes’ coin – the sweet harmonies alongside the screaming, the hand-holding pop songs with the face-kicking punk rockers. This time they headed to A Secret Location to record with Paul Maybury (ex-Rocket Science). In 2 days they captured 7 tracks live to tape, overdubbing only vocals and tambourine.

While it’s uniformly rough and ready (as it should be), each song shines its own little light on a different part of the Torpedoes repertoire.  ‘Down To The Wire’ is an anxious rocknroll pumper; ‘Nice If You’d Let Me Know’ screams along at 100 MPH; ‘Disarray’ howls like a banshee; ‘Sea Shanty’ is a huge singalong wall of noise; ‘Could This Be Love’ picks fights and breaks hearts; ‘Gaps’ is love on a speed bender; ‘No Wiser’ is quieter (kinda), slower (sorta) and surly (definitely).
