  Norweb - Permission to Spasm
By Andy Higgins submitted

I was handed this CD by the inimitable Roche at a recent gig I was playing in Birkenhead courtesy of Hocky (Instant Agony – Bite Back). For those who don’t know Roche (although many of you will) he was the powerhouse song-writer and creative force behind bands such as Dina and Drive. I believe this latest collaboration also features ex Electro Hippy member although the sleeve gives no clues away as to band members identities. The 6 track CD is great. It has a quirky cover, quirky songs and real Captain Beefheart feel to it. All the songs are good, varying in pace with great dead-pan vocal delivery over a well martialled and minimalist backbeat. Prominent cymbal crashes and stop-start twists make it really interesting and I would love to see these guys live. It’s a pity the lyrics are not included as, from what I can make out, they sound great. I think the opening track ´The Norweb Corporate Anthem´ is actually all about the late solid modern institution that ruled the national grid in the days of state ownership – pastries and biscuits to be placed in tins adorned with the Norweb insignia. Foremen, a job for all men, for four men - like it ... great effort – keep chasing those elusive frequencies Roche lad !
