TRUST PUNKS - Discipline LP
Although Calgary post-punks Women broke up in 2010, their influence has loomed large in the interim years. You can feel their presence in the likes of Ought and Each Other, and the wire-wool noise of Brighton label Faux Discx, who released the debut album by Faux Fur, featuring former Women drummer Matthew Flegel (who now fronts the great Viet Cong). Down in Auckland, Trust Punks – formed from the ashes of a more indie-pop leaning band called Grass Cannons – have taken Women’s gnarled influence to heart too. Eighteen months after releasing their first single, their debut album is finally out on Spunk Records.
