Some bands use the 'tag option on Bandcamp with deadly accuracy: The Haywains labels themselves: "alternative, c86, indie-pop, jangle-pop, punk-pop, twee, United Kingdom" and that says it all. Well, almost. What that promising and accurate summary doesn't explicitly state is that the band are not part of some 21st century twee-revival but were actually slightly-latecomers to the c86 party, having put out their first release back in 1988!
On "Get on Board With...". The Haywains prove they're still bursting with clever lyrics, catchy hooks and a relentless energy. There's no shocking musical developments here just seven-and-a-half minutes of alternative-c86-indie-pop-jangle-pop-punk-pop-twee perfection.
