Burning Kitchen - Damned If You do... Damned If You Don't


Why the fuck have I found myself listening to potent Riot Grrrl acts over the past week, and moreover absolutely loving it? This group, Burning Kitchen, hail from the icy climes of Scandinavia - Sweden to be precise. I get the feeling that this would have been a record that Kurt Cobain would have enjoyed. He really valued Punk Rock that managed to convey a pissed off attitude whilst propping that hatred up on a scaffold of simple pop structure and melody, much like Wipers who were coincidentally one of his favourite groups.

This record is beautiful in it's simplicity, blatantly Punk Rock, blatantly melodious, a combination which would fail a band with a more jellified backbone, yet Burning Kitchen run with the formula and churn through a gravel pit of 10 songs in 15 minutes. Pick this up and give it a try.
