A new album called Cancelled Rearranged was certainty not cancelled, because it’s just been released through Whole Hog Recordings.

Even better, the album was “recorded in the foothills of the Malvern Hills”, and it is the latest offering from those post-punk heroes, Skewwhiff.

And the icing on the cake will be a launch party at the Marr’s Bar, their spiritual home in Worcester, with good friend and special guest, Attila the Stockbroker, this Friday, October 18.

A spokesman said: “Following on from 2014’s debut album, Nice Little Upper, Skewwhiff release their long-awaited follow up, Cancelled Rearranged; it has has finally arrived through Whole Hog Recordings. Appropriately titled, the album has been carefully crafted through trial and error, cancelled and rearranged with blood sweat and tears.”

The spokesman added: “As did Nice Little Upper, Cancelled Rearranged deals with contemporary issues – mental health, social anxiety, female objectification, ageing.

“It still draws on the post punk influences of the debut, filtered through the grass floors of festivals to uplift rather than lament.

“From lead single opener, 1942, through to the Nigel Clark (Dodgy) remix of closer, Falling Apart, the album ebbs and flows but with a constant pulse and emotional charge – contemporary politics are never far away from this musical think tank.”

Cancelled Rearranged was recorded with Teece and Eb of Revolt Recordings and mastered by Pete Maher.
