When you are a blogger and your pals release an album things get tricky. Kochka are one of the first bands I
I'm a fan of the band first and foremost though, I wouldn't have roped them in to the gig, reviewed their old records, and generally told people to listen to and go see them if I didn't like, so it was with mixed emotions I listened to The Entropic Biopic of a Quixotic Psychotic. What if it's rubbish? How do you politely tell folk you like that the album you'd been waiting eagerly on was a massive letdown?
Happily I didn't have to answer those questions, since the album is certainly not rubbish. Happily I get to dodge trying to properly reviewing it too, since frankly I don't know where to begin describing it. This is an excellent album, and a "proper" album, with songs flowing from one to another, a beginning, middle and end.

Kochka play an album launch for The Entropic Biopic of a Quixotic Psychotic this Saturday at Stereo, where you can pick up a very limited CD copy of the album. Support comes from The Mademoiselle and Tragic O'Hara, and it'll only cost you £4 to get in. I'll be there.
