Starting beneath the Tyne Bridge, eavesdropping on the nesting racket of kittiwakes, and ending with a loop of a beloved amp dying mid-jam, it's yr noisy boys - Waheela! Back on the always essential Cruel Nature Recordings with their new set, 'a wreck so clean'. But for the gulls, a bunch of radgie jams recorded down at the Mill Hill Chapel in the centre of Leeds in a couple of sessions in 2017 & 2018 by Tom Goodall of the mighty Cattle.

Intense and brooding, a wreck so clean finds Waheela in muted if typically propulsive fettle, doing their cryptic cryptoid thing on sanctified ground: drum kit in the knave; amps on the pews; tangled wires across the stone floor. A weird little team relishing the building's extensive reverb; a strange cacophony all up in your lugs as this freakish decade comes to its juddering halt.

Four tracks, forty or so minutes, for you.

With love & squabbling, always,

whla x
