I thought that you were an anchor in the drift of the world;
but no: there isn’t an anchor anywhere.
There isn’t an anchor in the drift of the world. Oh no.
I thought you were. Oh no. The drift of the world.

—William Bronk (1918-1999, MCOTD Hall of Fame), “The World”

***

This Liverpool trio plays what it calls ‘caveman doom’ . . .

. . . retrofuturist murder ballad . . .

. . . works the same territory that grindcore and sludge bands cleared in the 90s.
