No Spill Blood

Street Meat (Sargeant House)

The first time I heard No Spill Blood, I didn’t know who they were. I had been awake for two days and was lying on my couch. One of my house mates got out of bed and came into the room and started playing their record really loudly (I think he was trying to get me to go to bed so he could be alone and try and force himself go to his awful job that he hates). I loved it. I wanted to ask him to turn it up even louder, but I couldn’t speak, and I couldn’t get up to turn it up myself. I wondered what it was I was listening to, it was so beautiful. I started slipping in and out of sleep. I began having a dream that the guitar player of the hardcore group  Amebix had left the band, and Gary Numan had joined them, and they had moved to Finland to work on a new sound. Throughout the dream the hardcore group kept changing  being Citizen’s Arrest back to being Amebix, and back again, Gary Numan was the only constant member. They were the best band I had ever heard, they jammed in a Finnish basement and argued about weather or not to play concerts. In the dream, they decided to play a concert, and I was at it, lying in the middle of the dancefloor, in a state of ecstasy. I was enjoying the concert more than anything I had ever experienced, I wanted to stand up and walk closer to the stage. I can’t remember  anything else about the dream.

Ever since that day I listened to their record “Street Meat” a couple of times a day. It isn’t the same band members as in my dream, it’s three guys from Dublin who are all out of other bands, but the music is exactly the same, it’s the best. Im so glad these guys make records and play concerts.
