Highly recommended.

Excellent and catchy as hell debut on the always-reliable Almost Ready Records. We hear traces of The Undertones, Billy Childish and Cramps, with some VU swagger thrown in.

BEN EDGE & THE ELECTRIC PENCILS was formed in 2015 by the Artist/Painter Ben Edge who was formerly of THE SPIVS. The name was inspired by a trip to The Collection de l'Art Brut museum in Lausanne, Switzerland where Ben Edge came across the drawings of the recently discovered outsider artist James Edward Deeds (aka the Electric Pencil). The band began originally as a two piece with STEVE COLEY playing the bass and drums as a one man band. After the duo recorded the debut album and made a video for the song 'Extra Curricular' the band temporarily split up. Ben Edge determined to see an official release for the album and keep the band going has since recruited TOM WING on bass and TEODORA KOSANOVIC on drums. The songs themselves are both raw and well crafted and reminiscent of bands such as the Kinks, the Vaselines, the Velvet underground, the Violent Femmes and the Cramps to name a few.
