Putting aside their shlock name for one moment Cerebral Ballzy are one of the most confrontational yet fun bands to emerge in some time, seemingly skating the rail between feral anger and drunken partying perfectly. Based in New York the band have only been to the UK once this year but that stay saw their trip extended when they were invited to play Reading and Leeds festivals in addition to their support slot with Canadian punks Fucked Up. The band return to our shores in late November to play with Trash Talk, probably the best live band I've seen all year.

Cerebral Ballzy have one EP to date which, to quote a source inside the bands camp "sounds like it was recorded in a shed". However, up next for the band is 'Insufficient Fare', a single release via Moshi Moshi. With Boris Johnson raising the minimum spend on the tube yet again this song is about as topical as it gets though I strongly suspect this was not what was not in Cerebral Ballzy's heads when they wrote the track.

To listen to the Black Flag/ Bad Brains style ramshackle carnage of 'Insufficient Fare' have a look below.
