I absolutely fucking adored Titus 12’s last full length album, Dig and Delve (on Sheffield’s Planet Terror netlabel), I played it to death in fact. Then, after a short respite, I revived it’s zombified form and repeated the process and after hearing this collection of early tracks, rarities and other oddities I feel the time has arrived to return to the lab and start doing the sort of thing with flashes of electricity, body parts and strange brews which usually gets the villagers and their burning torches all hot and bothered.
Bardman Business is no Dig and Delve of course but it’s still pretty damn good with a couple of proper stand out tracks which’d be worthy of a fully formed album and others which are well worth the price of admission (read: download & free). Special mentions for ‘Crisis Drone’ and ‘The Suits of Woe’ in particular the latter of which is approaching my all time favourite, fanboy revelry inducing ‘Mr Morningstar’ from Dig and Delve in the compulsive listening stakes.
Just remains to hope that this is a forerunner for another full length Titus 12 release.
