Who: A noisy Glasgow duo called John and Paul – not that John and Paul, obviously.
And as band name John Paul II would be ridiculous, they called themselves MEMES.
Tracks: ‘BLAH BLAH BLAH’ / ‘FUNNY MAN’ – brand new double A-side single

As long as their havoc makes my hair stand up in the back of my neck I really don’t care actually how a band looks like. And this fresh Glaswegian John/Paul tandem succeeds in getting my sonic attention directly with their double A-side debut single.
Both smoking tracks, ‘Blah Blah Blah‘ and ‘Funny Man‘ resonate gloriously infectious, crackingly jingle jangle and rumbly creaking. If The Fall would release their 1978 debut
EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out! today, it would sound as tumultuous and blustery as this…
