The Last Battle have just released their new EP, The Springwell EP. Having issued their debut single ‘Ruins’ and their awesome album Heart of The Land, Soul Of The Sea through us here at 17 Seconds, this is a self-release and very good it is too.
It contains five tracks, including a radical reworking of ‘Ward 119’ which was the b-side to ‘Ruins,’ and ‘Viv Nicholson’, all about the eponymous sixties Pools Winner who vowed she would ‘Spend, Spend, Spend.’ (And yes, she was on the cover of the Smiths’ ‘Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now.’)
Go and buy…you won’t regret it. Via the Bandcamp link at the top…or at Avalanche Records in person if you live in Edinburgh.
I feel way too close to the band to review this and give it a rating without being biased (or worse!) but it is awesome.
This is not on the EP – but it is a cover version of the Warren G and Nate Dogg track ‘Regulate.’
