David Cronenberg's Wife
The Fight Song EP Blang

Article written by Matt H - May 29, 2009

Who's better, David Cronenberg or his wife? There's only one way to find out...
A touch less sleazy than their debut single (you really had to wash after that one, though it's reprised here in slightly less icky style). David Cronenberg's Wife are still throwing a harsh unblinking light on the bits of life you'd be pleased never to experience (again).

Over loping rhythm and twanging guitar a vocal missing only the '-ah' from the end of each line, The Fight Song pokes into the dingier corners of relationships. Suicide - Stretch Out is more philosophical - offering you a false choice: faced with a coming train are you a pusher or a jumper?(though by co-incidence in China this week a couple of blokes pretty much answered the question...). Me? I just get on it, with this sort of thing on my headphones...

Some people write songs you wish you'd written. David Cronenberg's Wife write the songs you're glad you never thought of. Someone has to.
