Blackout Crew – Dialed

these guys are clearly addicted to amphetamines like 90% of other people workin in call centres….

As previously stated here your IchLugeBullets correspondant comes from the Midlands/Anglia bordertown of Northampton, a town that for three centuries from the mid 1600s to the 1960s was the centre of the international shoemaking trade, with around 30 factories dedicated full-time to shoe production at its peak, giving the world, amongst others, the Dr Martens, and leading to our local football team’s nickname of the Cobblers. Now, Northampton’s main trade is the call centre. Something like 60% of Britain’s banking queries are routed through either Northampton or Swindon. That’s something to be proud of.

And, heck, Blackout Crew aren’t afraid of a little hard graft or paying tribute to those of us who’ve done dirt under the constant threat of “calls may be recorded for quality control purposes” or a leaderboard with a first prize of some Quality Street for whoever gets to 100% call completion first. They’ve done a track with a video set in a bog-standard industrial call centre, and they’ve actually hired proper UK style video hoes. Check out the chubby blonde one, that’s a 1:30am grope by the Deal Or No Deal fruity in Wetherspoons’ special right there.

Anyway, “Put A Donk On It” was always going to be possibly the hardest single since The Futureheads’ “Hounds of Love” to follow up on, but “Dialed” is a decent enough stab at some meta-commentary on “MUSIC IS ALL RINGTONES” these days and, y’know, you could probably mix it into “Zombie Nation” if you so fancied. Bet Grimey Simey doesn’t put it in his year-ends this time round though.
