When the members of a band make the decision to bring the curtain down on their efforts under that one particular moniker, you always hope that the collective goes out with a bang as opposed to a whimper. There is nothing worse than finding that a group you've followed for years released something that does not befit the normal quality of their work and does not easily sit alongside previous releases. With Shang-a-Lang, this is the final record the band will release but I have no reference points to compare it to as I've never heard the band before. As such, I can only consider this five track seven-inch in isolation. But it's obvious that with no fewer than seven labels all being involved in the release of the record (I bought mine from Drunken Sailor Records here in the U.K.) and cover art provided by the much praised Mitch Clem/Nation of Amanda that this is not a band to be taken lightly by the uninitiated or long term fans alike.
