The Amazing Snakeheads - Can't Let You Go

Following on from their visceral debut album Amphetamine Ballads which we here at Far Out devoured like a skag head and a spoonful of joy, comes Glasgow bred The Amazing Snakeheads latest release; ‘Can’t Let You Go’. It’s gritty, raw and our Track of the Day.

Recorder with the legendary Clive Langer (Madness, Morrissey, Elvis Costello) saw Barclay turn his hand to another slice of home-truth pie and deliver a similarly scathing attack on our sociological statuses straight to the moosh.

Following the departure of the other two founding members might have deterred many from this raucous round-up of all things under-belly. But Barclay is fronting this change with a snarling grin and a knowing assurance in his own ability. ‘Can’t Let You Go’, released on December 1st on Domino Records, just puts the boot in further that Barclay means business and isn’t afraid to take anybody on when it comes to his art.

With ‘Can’t Let You Go’ Barclays’ chin is now firmly on a platter waiting for the perfect sucker-punch of cynicism, muttering through gritted teeth.

“Go on, fookin dae it. Naw? Dinnae think so”.

We won’t either.
