The Martini Henry Rifles - Superbastard mp3 album
Complete your The Martini Henry Rifles collection.
It makes the Rifles’ supercharged snot’n’roll rebel yell sound dated before its time. Still, there’s fire in it, from the Clinic electro-rumble of Showman to the brimstone bellowing of, well, everything else. Good news for fans of no tunes. Uncut – May 2019 issue.
The Martini–Henry is a breech-loading single-shot lever-actuated rifle that was used by the British Army. It first entered service in 1871, eventually replacing the Snider–Enfield, a muzzle-loader converted to the cartridge system. Martini–Henry variants were used throughout the British Empire for 30 years.
The Martini Henry Rifles were a British noise punk band based on Cardiff, Wales. Most of their quoted influences are noise and punk (most noticeable Brainiac, whose influence is clear in the Martinis' work), hence the most common noise-punk genre classification. The band themselves never quite put any kind of convenient genre label on their work, while on the other hand some people just choose to describe their sound as chaotic, mostly derived from their very energetic live performances. In December 2003 they finally release their single And Then We Hit A Truck, and in November 2004, after almost a year of recording and remixing, their debut album Superbastard. During the recording of the album drummer Jason Lorch decides to leave the band, and they start using a drum machine as a temporary replacement for him.
