The Battery Farm are back with a new video after the brilliant Excellent Public Speaker. Another track lifted from the Endless Unstoppable Pain EP (reviewed here) which ended up lifting number two spot in our singles of the year.
“A Little Nothing Man sounds sinister and builds into another raging number with a tribal drumbeat that flies into a rage of vocals and furious noise” is what I said and I’m not wrong. This one sees Ben Corry walking around North Manchester like a lost soul. The streets are empty and look all lockdown sinister as he heads off towards a monument and lays himself to rest his weary legs. A simple yet effective scene that obviously holds some significance. A fitting scene for a fitting slice of North Manc prunge. I interviewed Ben late last year and he explained where the band are at right now and the years of graft gone into eventually finding the niche that has morphed in The Battery Farm. Expect a punishing debut album some time soon. Full interview here.
The Battery Farm are:
Ben Corry: Vocals/Guitar, Dominic Corry: Guitar, Paul Worrall: Bass, Sam Parkinson: Drums
