Bruising – I Don’t Mind/ Rest In Peace Kurt Donald Cobain (1967-1994)

Beech Coma

DL/ 7″ Single

Out 2nd December 2016

I got the previous Bruising single as part of the Beech Coma Singles Club, this is just as good. The days of the single may be over in some people’s heads but here at Fighting Boredom we still like the small slices of music.

‘I don’t Mind’ is powerful and youthful. Its fuzzed out guitars and hard bass and drums has gaps for the unbelievably pretty vocal that changes this from just another inde song to a bloody great indie song. It all circles around the voice and when the sound kicks in all together it makes a glorious lonely, don’t really care noise.
‘Rest In Peace Kurt Donald Cobain (1967-1994)’ is, according to the band, one of the first songs they ever wrote. They felt that it ripped off a lot of other bands hence it being called various different names such as Ripped and RIP which became Rest In Peace Kurt Donald Cobain (1967-1994) that they describe as very tongue in cheek. It echoes the magic of a young Pixies. It’s just slightly off centre with enough odd guitar squeals to keep you on edge and take the calmness and sadness of the song to a different level. 
A great little record. Check them out
