Ray Weiss is still an angry young man yet he could write several tomes about his adventures in the music industry thus far. He started his first band the Medics while still at school but despite being courted by a number of labels including Island decided against compromise. Whether he’ll regret this decision remains to be seen but following a particularly messy part of his life (breakfast bowls of whiskey) he formed Le Rug. ‘Bleenex’ is the bands first album and even though it currently only has a limited run this could be one piece of work that’s gonna see many more reissues. Weiss rarely keeps the aggression in check so there are some wonderful examples of rollicking melodies bursting out of tracks like ‘The Loveless Fuzz’. From the word go a cavalcade of noise emerges from the speakers and in the process reveals more soul than a bumper drift net harvest. Word to the Weiss. KD
