Track Of The Day: Eight Rounds Rapid - 'Steve'

A tune that I genuinely can't get enough of, and a must-listen for indie and punk people alike. Eight Rounds Rapid are a band from Southend-On-Sea who have recently been championed by Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe amongst others. Amongst other things I can detect hints of Elastica's attitude, Dr Feelgood's energy, the repetition of The Fall and the no-nonsense delivery of the UK Subs. I would definitely like to hear an album from this lot. In the meantime they have just released 'Writeabout' on a 7" single limited to 500 copies, with the fantastic 'Steve' on the flipside. According to the band: "you can buy the vinyl single at 3 places: Pouch of Douglas near Westcliff High School (an art emporium), 'Fives' record shop in Leigh-on-Sea and the Norman Records online store...". I've also been informed that rough Trade have copies too. More info can be found at their Facebook page HERE...

Buy your 7" copy of the single HERE (if there are still any available!)
