I’ve spent the last two weeks really enjoying two tracks by the band BabyGravy. They remind me of The Slits and The Mo-dettes and take that same punk energy, snottiness, and humour. Farewell To Welfare is a song of insults – I particularly like the withering “You’re old enough to be my Daddy, but not in a sexy way” (and yes, it is probably true in my case).

I’m Not Like That is a girl protesting her innocence to a bloke trying to get her to get down and dirty. It bounces along with a Pop energy I haven’t heard for a long while. At the end the singer says “Oh my god, we really suck”. That bit is wrong…
