The Wildebeests are something of a garage-rock supergroup, seeing as the group consists of John Gibbs (The Kaisers, Holly Golightly Band, The Masonics), Lenny Helsing (Thanes, Green Telescope) and, last but not least, Russ Wilkins (Pop Rivets, Milkshakes and Delmonas). These three old gits all cut their teeth playing raw beat music and generally causing a rumpus aurally and have been doing so since before the likes of the Arctic Monkeys et al were born (which obviously means that they''re at least twice as good as any of those young whippernsappers!). When their paths crossed they found that they had the same old cranky, rusty equipment plus some new(ish) shiny tunes that had accumulated along the way and, hey, the Wildebeests were born! Finding themselves fueled by enthusiasm, dunce caps and other ingredients, like finding out that they all shared the same attitudes and ideas when it came to what "making a right old honest bloody racket"'' was all about . . . thusly the Wildebeests did verily go forth and bang, scrape, thump and twang. Could the world be their oyster? Nope. But this doesn''t deter them from jabbing a knife in its side and trying to prise it open These self-styled Lairds of the Boss Racket have been polluting the world''s ears for what seems like an eternity now what with each member''s previous bands and with the sheer volume of recordings, records and gigs that they''ve seen fit to unleash upon an unsuspecting public. And due to the sheer quality of the new songs (recorded by the unparallelled genius of Jorge Explosion at Circo Pirotti in Gijon, Spain) we figured it was about time Dirty Water Records assisted them in their mission. And that mission is . . . to make the best, most to-tapping, garage-beat sounds in the world! TRACKLISTING: 01. YOU LIED TO ME 02. ONE MINUTE''S TIME 03. NOTHING''S GONNA CHANGE ME 04. PULPO! 05.
