p>We like our noisy guitar pop here at Bluesbunny Towers. With this 5 track EP, Manchester based Fear of Music give us some much needed sonic pleasure.

Opening with the stomping "A Western Disease", the scene is set for some high volume antics. "Bitter Medicine" is haunted by the ghost of the Jam's "Eton Rifles" and is none the worse for that. Best track was "Standing in Rows" which features a ripping guitar solo - we like out guitars loud. We were therefore not disappointed by the closing track "16" either.

Whilst not particularly original, this does represent a good example of the genre. A good, commercial set of songs too.
