5 stars England's Finest.

This Heat's self titled debut is a real winner, up there with the likes of FZ's avant works. This Heat is one of those late seventies, early eighties bands that got lumped into the punk scene much like Throbbing Gristle and Smegma, because of their 'punk' attitude. This album starts off with the intro song Test Card, which is a short electronic piece, which sounds similar to something TG would have done, and the album ends with a song entitled Test Card, which is more electronic noises, just longer. On this album, there isn't one single bad moment, from the slower ambient-ish songs Diet Of Worms and Music Like Escaping Gas, to the freakout of Rainforest, and then the Heldon-esque futuristic song 24 Track Loop, with it's proto-Industrial drums. It is also worth noting to all Prog heads out there that one Charles Hayward, of Gong and Quiet Sun is a prominent member of this band.

This Heat's debut is an excellent show of Avante-garde Prog, and is a must have for A-G Prog fans.

Sheavy | 5/5 |
