How minimal can you get? #21

Seems Twice – Non-Plussed EP
“Like the bastard sons of early Wire and The Ramones, Seems Twice played incredibly short, fast and loud. Hardly ever more than a minute long, their songs define a most useful kind of minimalism: an intro (sometimes), a verse, a chorus and, occasionally, an instrumental section with very little repetition.” No Night Sweats

Seems Twice (Sydney, 1980). Mysterex

“None of the tracks is over thirty-seven seconds long with the shortest being sixteen seconds. Musically, however, they say more than many albums of the time. There is a spontaneity and art-minded innovation here worthy of Wire and Beefheart.” Andrew Schmidt


Seems Twice – Metropolitan Recluse
