Album Review

Untitled Musical Project
Untitled Musical Project Tigertrap Records

Article written by Adam W - Oct 20, 2007

Birmingham’s Untitled Musical Project, if they ever get anywhere, are destined to polarise opinion. Some will find them, on paper, infuriating with their ‘ironic’ name and their flagrantly ridiculous song titles (I May Not Be Jimi Hendrix But At Least I’m Still Alive for instance). Some will find them, on record, unlistenable with their shouty ATD-I/Fugazi endowed indie punk, jerky guitars and wilfully stupid-but-in-a-knowing-way lyrics. And some will no doubt find them a rollicking good laugh, a bold mixture of humour and chaos and slotting in perfectly to the Mclusky shaped hole currently still gaping in the contemporary scene.

You get the undeniable sense from listening to this 16-minute mini-LP that this band would be incredible fun live, and that they do seem to serve some kind of non-serious purpose. However as a studio band it is impossible to see Untitled Musical Project taking up much room on people’s iPod’s simply because they’re just a bit too annoying. This is the sound of a band deliberately trying to make one big daft art-school mess and, sadly, they’re not particularly good at it. To sound big, dumb, loud and clever at the same time is clearly more difficult than this lot give it credit for.
