Rave apes

Nearly four years on from seeing Part Chimp at Clwb, my hearing has just about returned - only for them to reveal that they'll be back with a new album in June. Drool is an apposite title, as it's pretty much all anyone is capable of after surviving a PC set.

The announcement prompted JR Moores of the Quietus to catch up with main man Tim Cedar about everything from playing at extreme volume, almost accidentally having two bassists and switching from Mogwai's Rock Action to Joe Thompson's freshly founded Wrong Speed Records, to Ringo Starr and whether noise rock is just nu-metal in disguise. The interview also features this absolute pearler: "Where would we be without worms? We'd be fucked, mate. We would be fucked."
