“I just wanted to start a band and play for fun,” explains singer Darren Vorel regarding beginning The Scissors back in 2002. After bouncing around various bands throughout their teens, Vorel and guitarist Steve Mocarski were eager to introduce something of their own. They didn’t hesitate to contact Matt Allison to crank out a seven song EP (The Riv Rat Rob EP) at Atlas Studios in Chicago before frequenting stages like The Fireside Bowl to get it into people’s hands. In 2004, they headed back to Atlas with new drummer David Schneider to record the first full-length.

The sound of The Neat is punk evolved. As London divides into throbbing zeitgeist and postpunk reactionaries, there blows a refreshing wind from Hull. They are unafraid of crediting the obvious Fall and Fire Engines influences as they spit Mark E.sque venom onto screeching guitars and thrust themselves forward face first and snarling: the energy of 76 meets the dexterity of 78, not progressive but utterly compelling. A jigsaw fit into the current backlash - witness live for maximum effect.
