LOYAL BLOOD Ef­fi­cient racket-mak­ing from the Arc­tic Cir­cle “The only rock band in Tromsø”, say Swedish pro­vin­cial power duo Jabba, who ped­dle rapid­fire, Big Busi­ness-go­ing-nutsin-a-dust­bin-like noise rock. The pair formed over 10 years ago so it’s been some wait for their de­but full-length. It’s not im­me­di­ately ob­vi­ous what they have spent those years do­ing on the strength of Vice, but at least six of them must’ve been spent cut­ting away the chaff from their mam­moth riffs. Here are eight, mostly three-minute blasts of only the es­sen­tials: weight, grunt and very lit­tle else. Jabba are no Big Busi­ness in py­ja­mas, though, and tracks like the os­mium Math­lete and fuzz-en­veloped high­light Rat in par­tic­u­lar sound like Un­sane miss­ing a mem­ber, while closer Drugs sounds like Black Co­bra if you’ve just suf­fered a se­vere head injury.

FOR FANS OF: Big Busi­ness, Un­sane, Black Co­bra
