Press Release :
Deptford's finest (forget Athlete, fer 'eaven's sake..) are back. The five piece mucky funksters who debuted in 2003 with their "Necessary Measures" album return to the fray with "All Out Fall Out" a journey into sound which combines an almost psychotic devotion to genre-clashing with a love of the good groove, the kind of band-against-the-world ethic you expect from punk rock with a sense of humour which means they don't taken any of it too seriously.

Pest are a five piece collective taking in a classically-trained cello player, an 'avin' it hip hop DJ/MC, one of the trombonists from the Bollywood Brass Band, a techno producer and a guitarist who is so good that Gibson paid to put him through music college. The result of this combustible mixture of styles, attitudes and characters is to be heard all over "All Out Fall Out".

From the fractured funk of "Delucid", through the fast guitar licks of "Pat Pong," on into the sweet melancholy of "Downward Steps," the cut-up symphonic rap of "Wu Ju," the locked African groove of "Click Bitches," the technoid G-funk of "Ogres," through the squelching attack of "Cous Cous" and on into the fairground psychosis of "Donde Pesta," this is an album that never sits still or plays to preconceptions.

Five diverse musical minds collaborate here to make something unique. The results may not always be straightforward but the motivation's that simple. It's a labour of love – and as occasional frontman Adrian Josey puts it on "Wu Ju", "it's amazing what you'll do for the things that you like…"
