Where was this album back in the early '90s when I couldn't get my fill of the Senseless Things and Ned's? Sure, I had heard of Slaughterhouse 5 in passing at the time, but an obvious opportunity to investigate them failed to present itself, and I didn't give them a second thought until I spotted a very affordable used copy of Wide Open at a local flea market. Dare I say this thick-accented UK quartet shambolically slotted in as that missing link between the Buzzcocks and Supergrass (then again, some might argue that gap wasn't particularly expansive from the get go). There's a uniquely jovial flair emanating throughout Wide Open that sets the S/5 apart from the crowded flock of UK punk-pop outfits that were trying to make a dent in the Britpop sweepstakes. A familiar approach, but with a flavor moxie all their own. I shan't give anything else away about this disk, but I should mention that the band is selling Wide Open on their website (though the purchase link isn't operational at the moment). That being the case I plan to leave this once it's available for purchase! If the Rapidshare link is gone by the time your eyes wander over this, you know what to do - show your love and support the band!
