BAND SPOTLIGHT// The Riddles
The Riddles are an exciting prospect, a three-piece punk band who build the stranger sides of 60s garage rock into their cacophony. Their confrontational attitude and description of their own sound as similiar to childbirth are only hints of the thrashing noise that assaults the ears from the outset: dirty guitars, wild snare-heavy drums and smacking basslines are all layered under a vocal which is simultaneously falsetto Johnny Rotten and mock Mark E. Smith. If you like an aural riot of an evening, you could do a lot worse than this lot.
