Like Black Flag beating Muse to death in a back alley, while James Brown holds the coats – Your Loyal Subjects have come to pummel your ears and face into the ground before holding the whole sordid mess in front of a mirror for contemplation.
“Subjection” has some of the best, most dynamic, face melting riffage that I’ve ever heard, and with incredibly intelligent political/ personal lyrics thrown in for good measure. Loud guitars and loud drums are one of life’s sheer visceral pleasures, and this LP has them in spades, as well as more funk than George Clinton’s trousers after he’s worn them for a month.
YLS have been a staple of the Edinburgh underground music scene for ages, and make more noise than every other Edinburgh band combined – at a recent gig of theirs, halfway through their set, the sheer metal racket they made attracted a pack of half naked vikings in from the street (they proceeded to stage dive, lick their own sweat off the walls, and pretty much smash the whole place up).
Your Loyal Subjects “Medicine”
Your Loyal Subjects “Objects”
Oh yeah, I designed the sleeve, by the way..
