Poundstore Riot is a collaboration between Welsh lo-fi maestro Ash Cooke (Pulco, Derrero) and Stu Kidd (BMX Bandits, The Wellgreen). Both being brought together by a mutual love of home-recorded (home-fi) music.
Inspired by an altercation that got somewhat out of hand at a half-price sale at a pound store in North Wales, the album ‘Writing the Wrongs’ has echos of 60s folk-rock psychedelia with the addition of the barn-storming punk grind of the eponymous track Poundstore Riot.
Lyrically intelligent, the album manages to be poignant yet at times laugh-out-loud funny. A must for fans of quality lo-fi music, Super Furry Animals and Teenage Fanclub.
“…a wonderful love letter to the art of home recording.”
– The Album Wall
“These two have really done something special here.”
– A Pessimist Is Never Disappointed
