The Leg

Chromatic Perversion (Tenement Records)

Cult punk-folk outfit The Leg – featuring vocalist Dan Mutch, cellist and one-man scratch orchestra Pete Harvey, and percussive polymath Alun Scurlock – have been around for 20 years or so, and have added guitarist James Metcalfe and bass player John Mackie for their latest foray into up-and-at-‘em raggle-taggle. They still sound as liberated and urgent as ever, but here their tunes have a woozy, dark edge to them, which also gives them plenty of heft.
