The Pop Group, Citizen Zombie

Comebacks are all the rage these days and, a month on from Sleater-Kinney’s return with No Cities To Love, Bristol post-punk quartet The Pop Group are back with their first album in a jaw-dropping 35 years.

Citzen Zombie may not be as good as S-K’s career best rebirth, but it’s still a winner: the title track will endear them to young metallers, Mad Truth funks along like it’s 1979 in a pleasingly Talking Heads-like manner and Nowhere Girl packs a mean melodic punch.

Overall it’s a bit of a tough listen but is still well worth seeking out.
