I Heart Hiroshima – London In Love (49)

December 22, 2009

I first heard Susie Patten play drums at the wake of another drummer. In an evening surrounded by sadness, heartbreak and awkwardness (not all caused by the death in question) Patton’s crazy drumming was one of the few highlights. Soon she bobbed up I Heart Hiroshima which suited her distinctively crazy, twitchy drumming style.

I love the stripped back sound, reminiscent of early Wire, and the sloganeering choruses of their songs.
