Don’t Bother is a new band from Paul Lawton (ex Ketamines / Century Palm). The band features Priya Thomas (who played in The Fall), Marc Holmes (a veteran of the UK hardcore scene), noise-artist Matt Nish-Lapidus, Mark Streeter and Rhonda Tidgwell. Ian Manhire said that Don’t Bother “sounded kind of like The Stooges”, Simon Harvey (Ugly Pop Records) said that Don’t Bother “sounded like The Fall”, and we assume they either weren’t listening or haven’t heard either The Stooges or The Fall. In reality, Don’t Bother sits at the intersection of the post-punk Century Palm sound with the Avant-garde garage-punk of The Ketamines.
