Soccer96 - Buy It

Soccer96 have what may be the best pseudonyms in music. Keyboard player Dan Leavers is Danalogue, and drummer Max Hallett is Beatamax. Ask me again tomorrow and I'll tell you they're the worst pseudonyms in music, so take that for what it's worth. Buy It comes from their Tactics EP (2020) where they're joined by the no less sensibly named Alabaster de Plume. Most attention will probably be given to the particularly timely I Was Gonna Fight Fascism but honestly Buy It is the killer track here, a polyrhythmic beast full of cynicism. It's taut and intense and the spindly anger is off the charts.
