Wanna Shrag?

Brighton, UK's Shrag have managed to avoid being genre-fied over the past few years. They have somehow been left alone to develop their riotous grrrl/boi noise away from fadish sounds that might have seen them swept up, and then just as quickly swept back under the Shrag-pile carpet. A steady flow of singles and downloads culminated in last year's release of their Life! Death! Prizes! album (through Where It's At Is Where You Are). "Ghosts Before Breakfast" is the latest single from the album (singing a sentiment no one would disagree with: "Don't wanna see ghosts before breakfast..."), its punk'd-up Bis-ness being a sidestep away from the lo-fi indie garage of 2010's close-to-breakout-track "Rabbit Kids". The band's label is currently offering the track as part of a free downloadable EP that also includes non-album cuts "Gutless Wonder" and "Heart Open/Mouth Shut" - definitely worth the click through.
