Sure Therapy? could blast out the kind of chunky riffs that have mosh-pits seething the world over – but, unlike many of their leaden, plaid-wearing contemporaries, they could do much, much more besides. Troublegum, their commercial high-water mark, is what happens when you take the paint-stripping American hardcore of Big Black and Black Flag, some vintage Bowie, a handful of the Ulster punk staples (The ‘Tones, Rudi, and The Stiffs) and leave them to fight it all out in a sack. Superb.
