Published Jul 16, 2007Only a year old, Nottingham, England's Lovvers (featuring former members of the shit disturbing rock outfit the Murder of Rosa Luxemburg) sound like a band that's been around for months. That's not meant to be an insult because this four-piece evoke the spirit of an era when musicianship was secondary to most things: grunge. Yes, it's back thanks to these kids from Sherwood Forest (actually, that isn't confirmed, just an assumption). Just like something from the Sub Pop catalog circa '89, "Near Enough For Jazz" is plastered with low-end sludge, emphasised with feedback that makes the vocals basically indecipherable. Ahh, the good old days! The best bit though is the band showing their sense of humour by actually attempting a brief jazzy bridge that let's you breathe before they plunge back into the knuckle dragging riffage.
