You've seriously disrupted band relations!

Leaving the UK shadow-cabinet earlier this year, Labour MP Tom Watson confused many by unexpectedly tipping a two-piece garage rock band from the Peak District called Drenge in his resignation letter. Drenge (rhymes with grunge), comprising Eion (b. 1991) and Rory Loveless (b. 1993), a band who cite England's heartbreaking loss on penalties to Argentina in 1998 and Anti-Social Behaviour Orders among their influences, were "not totally overjoyed" about this. Their response has been a series of feral, vaguely disturbing videos that highlight the oddly crap aspects of modern British life, some festival appearances, and a number of droll interviews. Is British music finally climbing out of what Dorian Lynskey calls its deadeningly conservative, R&B-goes-to-Ibiza period? Probably not, but Drenge's debut album, released today and currently streaming on the Guardian, at least provides something loud to play at the neighbours.
