SHREDDING PAPER, (summer 2002):

TURN PALE - 'Chance' 7"
Ex-members of Drekka and Panoply Academy decide to explore the darker side of post-punk, with vocals that remind one of the late lamented Ricky Williams from the Sleepers/Toiling Midgets.  They have the style down but still working on the substance, or at least tunes that stick to the ribs.  Whether this is a sincere attempt at the sounds of their youth or a jumping onto the 'post-punk' bandwagon (one of the 'selling points' listed in their promo sheet was that 'Post-Punk is the next big thing') will probably be answered on their upcoming album.
