Falling Stacks are a three piece Bristol band that has been around two years. Falling Stack’s sound has been variously described as somewhere between Big Black, Fugazi and the Jesus Lizard though they have also received comparisons to The Fall, The Stranglers, Shellac and Wire. Their stuff is disorderly, experimental, avant-garde, distorted and even desperate. It’s not charming but not without charm.
White Wild Hare seems on the surface to have little to do with its title, beyond being wild. It starts with a big “Whaaah” and jangles your nerves with difficult to discern vocals and an overall sound as eclectic as any Frank Zappa, Brian Eno or hard drug Velvet Underground. The vocals in tone have the urgency and determination of the urban poetry of John Cooper Clarke.
