Dog Eat Dog: Astoria, London
Ian Watson, Melody Maker, 27 July 1996
WHO DO you think is more punk rock? The committed mohawk who lives on a steady diet of superfast hardcore tunes and fronts a troupe of snowboarding noise addicts? Or a bloke who looks like the teenage son from 2.4 Children and spends his evenings organising "birthday shout-outs" with his defiantly unethical party band? Plump for the former and you have a life of muddy melodies and low ceilings to look forward to; pick the latter and you're instantly transported to a land where raging hormones rule over petty ideals.
