Comment: Mark E. Smith and The Fall are being considered as true representatives of the underground rock movement. Although The Blackpool, UK-based John Crewdson-led project The Hirundu could be considered a doppelgänger of the Manchester legends yet they have represented something even more through since the end of the 80s. Stylistically they are more diverse and musically more hoarse and firsthand. This was their one of the first issues at all while they were being more guitar driven sounding as a demented, fucked-up blues influenced rock and roll act, the formula which was two decades earlier invented by Captain Beefheart. Strumming (indeed, reflecting upon then strong jangle pop influence – for instance, at I'll See You you could draw comparisons with McCarthy) and at times light-hearted propulsive guitars are set atop in the middle of buried singing and reversed sonic effects and inferior yet somehow stimulating tape hisses. The Blackpool-based combo's music consisting of four pieces is very elegant and irresistible in its lo-fi tinged approach. It is a very solid notch within their great legacy being issued under their own Pitch And Putt Records.
