Review Summary: Eight Rounds Rapid hail from Southend-on-Sea and sweat rock & roll - they recently supported Wilko Johnson on his farewell tour. Buy this record, place it on your turntable and crank the mother up.

EIGHT ROUNDS RAPID
Writeabout/Steve on Prodophenia Records – 7˝ Vinyl Single (Limited stock)
Order online: http://www.normanrecords.com/

'Writeabout' is straight in and no messin’. David Alexander’s machine gun vocals attack the media’s obsession with celebrity culture with a matrix of stabbing riffs stampeding against the brittle snap of thunderous drumming. Simon Johnson shreds the lead guitar strings like his old man, you can smell his bloodied fingers from here. The infectious energy is absorbing on every level; the end is abrupt and leaves you breathless.

'Steve' is a familiar tune to their die-hard fans; it provides a catchy juxtaposition with an innocent directness in the vocals against a jagged backbeat. They don’t flaunt their skills, it’s out there in the deviant rhythm and enticing hooks.

This double A-side record is not for the faint-hearted.

I can't deny you use terms decently well, but this reads more like a press release than a review. The
"order online" section at the beginning doesn't help your case either.

Review is far too short to be acceptable.

Thanks for feedback but it is a genuine review & not pr. How to order info is there because it is limited in stock and not sold in shops. Trying to be helpful to anyone who wants to get their hands on it.

That's generally something you want to put in the comments then. Review itself should only be about your experience with the music, comments can have random thoughts / where to stream/buy.

Okay, thanks. I normally review for a mag where the whole piece includes band info, digi download details etc, so it's clearly a different format on here! Anyway, I thought they were worth a mention. Cheers.
