Robert The Bruces Spider by Instant Species

The first time I heard Instant Species was on a Dance To The Radio compilation when they played a kind of TexMex song with a punk energy. That track Homrecide is on this album and still sounds very fine. Go To Your Grave In Mexico is along a similar theme and if you want to know what Calexico would sound like when given a good talking to by some lads from Yorkshire, then here it is. The Track Love Hooks does remind me a bit of Three Dog Night. Men Of The Sea is just that, a Sea Shanty.

I can’t think of any other band that play music like this – the only historical reference i can give is the Band Of Holy Joy who were wonderous in their time. Instant Species are a new twist.
