A Burnt Out Case by The Savage Nomads

Tom Jenkins | Tuesday 22 May, 2012 14:09

Having already caught the eye of London’s punk rock glitterati, namely The Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, The Savage Nomads are currently conquering the airwaves with recent single Tension in the Middle (above). 6 Music’s Tom Robinson describes it as ‘the most astonishing single of the year so far’: he’s not far wrong. It’s a very British spoken word piece, combining The Streets at their most melodic with Mark E Smith’s vocal attack and a hint of Ghost Poet’s urban melancholia.

Today’s MPFree is the equally fine album cut A Burnt Out Case, taken from their debut long-player Coloured Clutter, available here. Catch them at the Notting Hill Arts Club, May 30.
