Typically brilliant punk/funk ep from Brighton’s wonky noise factory, this time including covers.

Squid, the Brighton based, noisome post-punk band who recently released their Sludge/Broadcaster single, have today shared an EP of covers entitled Natural Resources. The EP includes Squid‘s take on the brilliantly bizarre Pigs (In There) by Robert Wyatt, which they initially premiered at End of the Road Festival 2019. It also sees them cover Steve Reich’s Clapping Music, which they embellish with their own blend of their unique, ecstatically cacophonic percussion and swirling, trance-like vocals.

All purchases of the EP will go towards the East Bristol Food Bank, who Squid say are “offering vital support in the local area, covering the whole city across 5 outlets. For more information go to www.eastbristol.foodbank.org.uk“.

The band originally recorded the two tracks last year. The EP features artwork by John Molesworth.
