ONE EYED WAYNE - ATTACK OF THE LUXURY FLATS CD
RELEASE DATE 5 APRIL 2019
Re-issue of the Debut self released album by North London based
ONE EYED WAYNE
A downbeat, drizzle flecked post-Sleaford Mods portrait of the UK in 2016 graphically brought to life.
‘As society continues to teeter on the brink of total decay. They grasp the nettle of “contemporary issues” by providing a cutting and breathless commentary on the minutiae of 21st Century life.
Sharing some ground with Art Brut and the Libertines, they look also for inspiration further back with the incomparable Ian Dury.
On Attack Of The Luxury Flats they take us on a whistle-stop tour of Broken Britain littered with aspirational ad breaks that are designed to make you feel inadequate without the fastest car/broadband/loan, nightmare night-life scenarios and local amenities so run down they eventually are demolished and replaced with high-money yielding flats. The title track addresses the later issue adeptly.
One Eyed Wayne see clearly what is wrong and don’t have a problem letting us know about it.’
