After a long hiatus, one of the UK’s most notable and unique
punk exports, SNUFF, are back with a new full-length. Since
the band reunited to play The Fest back in 2009, SNUFF lit a
spark of hope amongst fans that there could be new
material on the horizon. Well, three years down the road and
that spark has evolved into an inferno of anticipation.
Fortunately we’ve got just the thing to quench it: SNUFF’s
first new studio album in a decade (!!!), 5-4-3-2-1… Perhaps?
And talk about a return to glory, the new album is in perfect
company with hallmarks like Demmamussabebonk and
Snuff Said. 5-4-3-2-1 is a return to that trademark SNUFF
sound that took up where The Specials left off, turning
abandoned dancehalls into adrenaline filled clubs where
punks, mods, and skins all stage dived together. The
energy, melody, and, dare we say, danceability of 5-4-3-2-
1… Perhaps? is at the exact level that earned SNUFF such
praise as “the best band in the world” from the NME. With
hit after addictive hit, 5-4-3-2-1 exceeds the expectations of
even the most fervent fans and will quickly be considered
among the best albums of SNUFF’s vast catalog.
