More gems gems from the talented circle of growing Brighton musicians that are Tuff Enuff Records, this time featuring hypnotic krauty garage largesse of Slum of Legs. I can’t get over how much her voice reminds me of Nico, especially in this specific song. Released on a Ltd to 60 demo cassette with only 3 tracks at just under 12min. Sometimes it can be a bit ridiculous to get a ~10min cassette, but the quality of the material here is just so fucking epic, I only wish it was on a 7”. I was originally drawn to Tuff Enuff by the Riots Not Diets compilations, highlighting bands from the annual RND club night in Brighton, featuring underground DIY/riot grrrl/punk. But for me these demo/live cassettes have become the real winners. The Middle Ones live cassette earlier this year will be on my best releases of 2013 (name your own price BnDcMp, hint hint), and I just wish this demo was as long. Keep your eyes on the Tuff Enuff crowd in the next year, I expect more excellent things to come.
Slum of Legs - s/t Demo Cassette is Ltd to 60 yellow tapes and includes an immediate dl. Order now from Tuff Enuff Records before they’re gone.
