THIS HEAT - Deceit

thisheat-deceit.jpgFinally available separately (the Out of Cold Storage box set having been released over a year ago), we can pay This Heat's second (and final) full-length its proper respects. More melodic than its self-titled predecessor (opener "Sleep" features keening vocals akin to fellow Cold Storage sessioner Robert Wyatt) while retaining, if not surpassing, the first record's ferociousness ("Makeshift Swahili"'s sandpaper-hoarse barking, the finely-honed aggression of "A New Kind of Water"), Deceit is a defining moment for British post-punk. A truly original, influential group way ahead of their time.
