    Anyone else think Leemun looks a bit like Jonah Hill? Before Jonah put on all that xxxtra weight. Beast of a set in Glasgow Thursday past.

    Reasons to love Castrovalva: 1). Leemun can jump from screaming to roaring to falsetto to rapping all in the space of 1 verse. 2). I like my basslines to have my bowels on edge, Tony delivers these shit tremoring brown notes 3). Brader has breaks that'll melt ya face 4). Leemun's artwork is pretty frickin' cool 5). 'You Better Make That Money', 'Pump Pump, and 'Donut' are tuuuuunes! 6). Anyone who uses an original issue of the Digitech Whammy gets a thumbs up from me 7). They're not afraid to get in your space live 8). Not many people can marry Noise Rock, Gangsta Rap, Grime, Breakbeat so well

    Wasted noise rock with Patton-/Blood-Brother-vocals, well. I think I hate it, but I'm not quite sure. Could be more entertaining live - or 10 times as terrible.

    Naaaaah the vocals are ace, Mike Patton kind of thing with a few different vocal styles going on.
