Slap Rash, an unusual name with a unique sound. The punk duo formed ‘SLAP RASH’ from a disbanded funk band, inspired by the works of IDELS, METZ and Oh sees. I’ll admit this isn’t usually a genre I listen to out of choice, but after listening I can see why the pair are making such a mark in the Manchester punk scene.
After their first release entitled ‘The Grind’ back in 2018 establishing their presence as an emerging punk-rock outfit, they returned with latest release ‘Zone A’. Amelia and Huw are the perfect match; she spits and shouts down the microphone whilst providing machine-like drum work, Huw provides roaring bass and synth tones which in turn gives SLAP RASH their signature sound.
A live performance I’m sure would be something to behold, sarcastic and defiant, check out SLAP RASH on Spotify below:
