Like an amalgam of And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead (stop with all that Trail of Dead text like revisionism) and little known (but much loved, in my heart at least) Derby band Cable ‘The Pacific Has No Memory’ is the first track from Super Tennis that I have adopted. There will be more as this North London band has just fallen together into the twisty and irregular shapes I always crave. Wimbledon may be over but the threesome take no greater delight in donning the white gear and fluffy headbands. Tom McEnroe, Bob Becker and Kev Perry (hee hee) have released 2 free-to-download (FOD in other words, hey that might catch on!) EP’s so far and I really like what I hear. The yelps might be off putting for some but when a bag of jangle roves alongside the combination becomes irresistible. ‘The Pacific Has No Memory’ floats about the place for over 7 minutes, swerving, swooping but generally going in no particular direction whatsoever. It’s ace (!) in other words. At the end of it you might be asking what are they on but then that wasn’t chalk dust you saw in their rehearsal space. Above all though they were just Bjorn to do this.
