Paper Cuts

I listen to this West Londoners group, Paper Cuts, and can hear nothing but Mark E. Smith poking his head out of their dense, ragged, terribly abrasive post-punk style. Which is really a little unfair on my part ... although these do hold a lot in common with the Fall and Mark E. Smith (especially vocally), there's a lot more going on beneath the surface.

First and foremost, I hear a little bit of like ... the Offspring or Social Distortion or something. There's an element of that no-nonsense Southern California punk mixed into Paper Cuts' music that sets them apart from groups you'd innately identify them with, and I think that's pretty damn cool.

Check out "82 Doo Doo Doo" and "Exit This Topic" below. They rock hard.
