"Midlife Shorts is the EP’s stand out track by a country mile. It is built around a simple, pensive (and inevitably) repetitive guitar, with Davies listing a variety of potential scenarios – for example: “scenario seven, rob provincial post offices and convenience stores for one year, save up, disappear” – to what end I am unsure, maybe he’s trying to work out which path will be least likely to make him get naked, go fully postal and lay waste to the villages and hamlets of the Rhubarb Triangle. It’s difficult to say."

"Aargh, this mess again. Six holes stuffed on the cover, but the most annoying of them have forgotten. The titletrack Cartoon Head Is El Prez, as expected, a pissed down on the currently most successful B-Celebrity from the reality TV. Musically, the whole time is once again a brilliant creaking noise and experimental ghost, which for me repeatedly sounds as if the biting cynicism of the Sleaford Mods would hit the most experimental excrescences in the long discography of The Fall."

GAD WHIP are a quartet of non-hairy and also hairy freaks from various northern shitholes who present an ungrateful world with a very pleasing hodgepodge of high-energy, low-fidelity punky psychedelia and post-industrial musique concrète.
