THE BAKELITE AGE
Mainman Link McLennan - aka
Link Meanie of hyperactive pop-punkers The Meanies - has a musical track record
longer than an identity thief’s credit card receipt trail, and his output’s
marked by a sense of wacky quaintness or sheer oddity.
Raw, catchy, impulsive and way
too much fun, shoot the messenger is simply a must listen. There are hooks and
tempo changes from all angles, keeping the listener on edge and wondering what
the hell is coming next. This is an inspired effort; 40 minutes of music that
will never grow old.
The Bakelite Age has a knack
for drawing on the dark claustrophobia which so defines the Melbourne scene,
infusing it with eccentricity and black humour then repackaging it as fuzzy
noise pop. No easy feat I can tell you.
