Single Review


586 We Got Bored
Tigertrap Recordings


Article written by Hattie N
May 29, 2006.

“We got bored” squeal, scream and shriek 586 front-persons Steve Horry and Deborah Coughlin, sounding like Sons & Daughters if they were two bratty teenagers with ADAH syndrome fronting a now jobless Test Icicles tribute band who decided that Art Brut would be their next victims. Ironically the repeated refrain of “We got bored” gets a bit, erm, boring after approximately the 57th time, but boy does it show that this lot are a bit jaded by life’s monotony. So much so that they eventually give up such lude, crude and rude lyrics such as “we got bored so I ripped out my heart and put it in front of your face” and just make uncomfortably indiscriminate noises like blurrgh erraghhh bam bam flabadaba aaaaeee and burrrr. It’s kitsch and cartoony music to pogo to that makes very liberal use of handclaps and cow bells and is therefore utterly glorious, in a tacky and infantile sorta way. B-Side He’s Got My Measure, meanwhile, is pure pop sass with attitude, Coughlin sounding like a repressed secretary in a pencil skirt whilst being cynical about a scene that 586 may well soon be part of.
