It’s been just over three years since Wot Gorilla? released their sensational debut album ‘Kebnekaise’ and this track reminds me just how much I’ve missed them. There have been a couple of sporadic releases since then – 2013’s ‘Oddities’ collection and random single ‘Joints’ last year – but nothing to compare to the debut album.

‘Skiddaw’ is another great display of the chaos that Wot Gorilla? are so proficient at, but despite the random time changes, sporadic guitar parts and schizophrenic vocals, everything somehow pulls together to produce a coherent, fast-flowing song. The band are playing in Leeds next Monday and I’ll be interviewing the guys to find out what they’ve been up to and what they’ve got up their sleeves in the future to follow the intriguing ‘Skiddaw’.
