About this item

Wet Paint make music governed by a simple premise - whatever you do, make sure that it's LOUD! Their surging guitars, irreverent lyrics and deceptively simple melodies are all driven by the same slacker-passion that spurts from the likes of Pavement, Dinosaur Jr and Pixies. Wet Paint are ready to rock your socks off! It all began when three fifths of the band Absentee decided to be more productive between 6:30 and 11pm on Monday evenings. Side-stepping their familiar roles, Babak took up the mic and found his scream, Laurie hung up his bass and picked up a squealing axe, whilst Melinda discarded her melodica for a pair of thunderous drum sticks. After a few evenings of noise-making it became clear that throbbing bass lines would complete this raucous sound. In stepped James, of the exceptional Economy Wolf, and the Wet Paint line-up was complete. "Save The Whale" is a rather wonderful slacker-indie anthem that's further augmented by a beautiful lo-fi rendition of the song by Lightspeed Champion on the B-side. Tremendous!!!!!
