Super Secret Club – The ‘Nope Nope No’ EP.
The Plymouth based not so exclusive exclusive Super Secret Club have broken from their clandestine confines to release an EP somewhat themed around the word “No” and variations of such. A theme which naturally requires some form of Punk-Rock music in accompaniment.
The EP holds its influences close but without over treading ground and the mildly upbeat yet characteristically melancholy Punk-Rock of ‘Cheer Up, Kelly’ nods welcomely to Dillinger Four.
‘Irn Bruiser’, without giving the game away, focusses on a certain British Politician getting far too excited in his passion for sports and hitting the ground hard via someone else. Musically it follows on well and hints at a slowly progressing and much more abrasively led sound.
The (sort of) title track is mid-placed in the running order which is a safe move but a welcome one. ‘Nope Nope Nope’ is another one of those retrospective and analytical Punk tracks that caused me to fall in love with the modern end of the genre in the first place; simple honesty.
Nope, no idea.
One of the first things the wild Punk listener with recognise and comment upon, is the “thickness” and coherence of the SSC’s sound. Now, I’m aware of how empty a compliment that may well be but SSC’s sound is not always the fastest or the heaviest but its presence is still sizeable nonetheless and even despite the Hardcore Punk charged ‘Numero Uno’ it is always beckoning you to explore its depth further.
‘You Just Punched Me In The Feelings’ leaves you with a brief chuckle after its title but in reality is another lament of Punk-Rock honesty and more reasons why I can’t fault this EP.
But none of this matters, because its all a secret except it isn’t, and you can find the band below:
