“Lifeguard” by Londoners Friendship is my favourite of the two on this Too Pure Singles Club release from last year, but Die! Die! Die!’s “We Built Our Own Oppressors” isn’t half bad, either. The latter can also be found on their album Form, on the fantastic Flying Nun. They have just released a new full-length, Harmony, and I think it’s rather good.
Not sure what’s going on with Friendship (who had already featured in the TPSC in 2009, by the way). They (or he) don’t seem to have been too active lately. Which is a shame.
