The Red were obscuro Brit exports whose self titled EP was bifurcated into "fast" and slow" sides. The "fast" tunes arrive on side A, and only rapid by sheer comparison to the other half of the coin. Sounds like these guys were putting an Anglo spin on Stateside contemporaries Wire Train. Not quite straightforward new wave, "Promises" and "Hell and Morning" are inviting, forward-thinking slices of modern rock rife with melody and ringing guitars. Sorta predates what bands like the Ocean Blue and Then Jerico would soon have in mind. "Sail Away," one of the slower pieces, is indeed more subdued, not to mention polished. Overall this record is a solid thumbs up.
