EXIT 13 teletext review october 2004-11-02
EXIT 13 are a four piece band who are effectively a vehicle for steve mann the founder and MD of the longstanding Ipswich Indie label Backwater.
Their third album confirms Mann as an indefatigable low rent Beck ,an auteur as happily to draw from electro-stomping glam rock and ambient experimentalism as from indie rock.
Its jerkyjokiness can lead it into novelty territory but the Dylanesque "not us this time" and TREX like "How do you do" betry an original talent.
Sturmey Archer is available from here as well.
