About this item

Interrobang‽ - with a clear vision to create something current and relevant. Something that speaks to the generations who grew up in the shadow of punk, with hopes and dreams, full of rebellion. Bruce and Hamer both have previous form as awkward troublemakers in the anarcho-pop-cabaret troupe Chumbawamba whilst Griffin was a former enfant terrible in the London louts, Regular Fries. What happened to that spark? How do we express our anger now? How relevant are we? How do we make ourselves heard and where do we fit in now? The eponymously entitled Interrobang‽ album is vocalist Bruce laid bare, torn open asunder, as he finds himself deep in those 50-something blues. Lyrically the album is an exploration of his determination to never give up the struggle despite his own malaise.

He questions and rails against his own demise with song titles such as Curmudgeon, Mad As Hell and Am I Invisible Yet? whilst still full of that anger about the state of the world in songs such as Are You Ready People? and Here Now. He veers from the personal to the political, from the poignant to the pithy, never pulling any punches, always being brutally honest but with an ability to laugh at himself as well. The music of Griffin and Hamer is short, sharp and urgent. Interrobang‽ pride themselves on their tightness and economy in these rapid-fire assaults and with their crisp, cutting backing vocals the band have created an album that is pointed and precise, exciting and exhilarating. This is an album’s worth of hard hitting songs for hard hit people with Griffin’s guitar technique building layers of scorching sonics which when seen live will astound. From such statements of intent as Here Now to the lament Do You Remember? about Bruce’s difficult relationship with his father to the uplifting and inspiring Love It All, we are taken on a rollercoaster of an adventure. This whole journey is all based on a true story of discontent but Interrobang‽ have thrust themselves back in the fray, with something to say; they are determined to not fade away and this is their cri de couer!
