Record of the Day….Hollywood Wax by Sweaty Palms or is it The Sweats…?


If ever a band name matched their sound – this is it!

Glasgow’s Sweaty Palms play Birthday Party, Pere Ubu-like paranoid, anxiety-ridden noiseartgothsurf punk and it makes me nervous just listening to them. Or maybe it’s just the coffee…?

They’re also known as The Sweats, but play as Sweaty Palms…I’m confused – I think they like it that way. Wait, what was that noise…?
