Allusondrugs - I Should Have Gone To Uni (Clue Records) 
Allusondrugs - I Should Have Gone To Uni

I love getting in on a band from the ground floor and I've been a fan of Castleford boys Allusondrugs for a while now so it's really satisfying to see them receiving so many accolades from the high and mighty of the rock'n'roll world. This latest single is a free give away under the title of 'I Should Have Gone To Uni' which hints at the slightly reflective tone of the song. However, the lumbering, distorted chords the fuzz up the opening bards of this song are not remotely reflective as they bludgeon through the air like a cricket bat through a stubborn skull. Essentially, this is the British Nirvana taking on the feeling of small town abandonment when all your mates disappear off to the cities for University and you're all that is left behind with the school kids and the retirement homes. Allusondrugs, on the other hand, have probably got a brighter future ahead of them with this dirty, grungey, honest rock'n'roll than the majority of those who will graduate from University in 2015. So, you know, in your face University.
