THE WRONG SOCIETY – \”Tell Me You\’ll Be Mine\” / \”I Really Don\’t Care\” (Market Square Records MSR-20) February 2018

Market Square Records is an enterprise coordinated by Paul Messis and what a fantastic job he\’s doing too. Single releases are limited to 300 and all are relevant and his label has a new release by Germany\’s The Wrong Society.

I\’ve known about this combo for a number of years and have followed their progress via their Facebook page and have always bought a copy of their discs. This latest 45 doesn\’t disappoint, the top side \”Tell Me You\’ll Be Mine\” is an uptempo punker with background harmonies and a solid backbeat. This one really moves along nicely and is interspersed with a pulsating fuzz guitar break. Short but sweet but it\’s there and it adds a touch of menace.

I particular dig the B-Side \”I Really Don\’t Care\” which has that sombre New England Teen-Scene sound that has become popular. So not only has Germany got great footballers, beer, cars, castles, chocolate and huge sausages….they\’ve also got a cool garage band.

Both sides recorded at Heiko Herzog in Room 424 and mastered by Tim Warren.
