current affairs

Current Affairs are from Glasgow and the reverb-heavy chorus and flange guitar sound of “Breeding Feeling” draws on that classic post-punk sound, adding its own distinctive joyous earworm chorus.

“Breeding Feeling” is one of two tracks on a new 7″ single from Current Affairs out on Glasgow label Not Unloved label. The song (and the B-Side) captures perfectly the exotic dark kind of guitar sound often attributed to fellow Scot John McGeoch (from Greenock, near Glasgow, and Magazine, Banshees & PIL guitarist). There’s also a bit of the fidgety ice cool brilliance of bands like Josef K (on legendary Glasgow label Postcard Records in the early 1980s) about this song’s totally wired energy.

Current Affairs are Joan (The Royal We/Seconds/Rose McDowall‘s band), Seb (ex-Anxiety), Josh (The Downs/Kaspar Hauser/Rose McDowall’s band/Jacob Yates) and Andrew (Shopping/Milk Records).
