LEATHERFACE ‘Mush’

Jul 11, 2021 | Reissue, Reviews

Sunderland’s finest bring their finest

Leatherface were always destined to be embraced by, and yet transcend, the punk rock scene. They just had too much talent with a melody or two to remain pinned down. Mush is their most accomplished album – even without their killer anthem Razorblades & Aspirin being present. Cover versions aside, when the guitars hit full saturation, and Frankie Stubbs’ caustic voice lets rip, there’s an almost sonorous purr to their attack. Including scream-along punk nuggets I Want The Moon and Not Superstitious it didn’t exactly propel them into the upper echelons of music’s social strata, but for those in the know, Sunderland’s finest had arrived.
