SARANDON – The miniest album (7", Run Out/Banazan RUN001/BAN011)

Posted: November 10th, 2004, by Simon Minter

A quick wee mention for this single, featuring diskant’s very own Joe Morris on bass!

Sarandon rock just like it’s C86, in many ways… there are seven tracks on this fizzy record which whip by at a jerkily furious pace. Everybody’s loving the whole world of jerky/angular/80s-style noisy pop right now, we’re told, so maybe this is Sarandon’s time! Ridiculous music industry trends aside, this is a fun and funny single; anybody with more than a passing interest in the lineage of Josef K – Fire Engines – Stump – Bogshed – Big Flame – Yummy Fur will, I think, find something to make them smile on here.


Simon Minter

Simon joined diskant after falling on his head from a great height. A diskant legend in his own lifetime Simon has risen up the ranks through a mixture of foolhardiness and wit. When not breaking musical barriers with top pop combo Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element or releasing records in preposterously exciting packaging he relaxes by looking like Steve Albini.
