Cop on the Edge
4 song demo

'Ello, 'Ello, 'Ello, what have we got here then?' I'll tell you what we've got here. We've got some sparkling new wave, electro type sounds from the New Cross based quintet, 'Cop on the edge'.

The four songs on offer here are marvellous. They blend the likes of Talking Heads into every second of sound but the result is something which belongs to them alone. The lyrics are disjointed and amusing. My favourite track is probably I want don't get which contains the brilliant lines, "I want to blend into the background by wearing a suit made completely of buildings". It's a funny and smart release but there's room for a little seriousness courtesy of the track Semi-engaged which appears to chart the dilemma faced by a young man who insists that, "No, I'll never be late and I'm eager to please but I don't feel enough to get down on my knees".

New Cross is becoming a hotbed of talent again and with the likes of these lot patrolling the area it's easy to see why. They're an arresting band...
