There Must Be Some Way To Stop Them, and indeed there must - Vaux have gained control of musical instruments and are wreaking havoc with a strange blend of heavy beats and spastic guitar solos. And it's impressive to say the least. Even after just one listen, There Must Be Some Way To Stop Them seems blazing and impenetrable. Vaux are delivering something different - what can only be described as a blend of old school garage rock with screaming post-hardcore. It's a unique listening experience.
Kicking off the proceedings (whatever the hell the proceedings are) is Set It To Blow; a rampage of noises, electronic blips, mashed up guitars and booming bass that clearly isn't shy to set the record's agenda. There is some relief from the heavier tracks, provided in the form of the slow and moving Switched On, and while the break is welcome it's nice to get back into the crazier tracks again.
Until this month Vaux only meant one thing to me: A local brewery company and purveyor of fine ales. Now the word not only equals a great way to socialise, and often over-socialise if you get me, but also a rocking band that can rip your head right off. Bonus.
