The Moon

Deranged, London-based punk band Sniffany & The Nits draw a line between the British post-punk of The Fall and the new wave of insolent hardcore typified by bands such as Lumpy & The Dumpers. Featuring members from Joanna Gruesome, Ex-Void and The Tubs, the band veer between atonal no-wave guitar assault, straight-up hardcore punk and goth/anarcho, culminating in a sound that is recognisably Nit-like. Sister Sniffany’s narrative-based lyricisms give the band its distinct individuality and style, etching out eerie characters exorcised from deep within her own psyche. Always grounded by a pounding, pogo-ing rhythm section, The Nits provide the perfect backdrop for Sister Sniffany’s wild performances.
