Song Therapy: Manchester band No Flash actually have a lot of flash
“Officer” by No Flash
Why aren’t these Manchester rockers signed yet? They have smart dynamics, with players weaving in and out of each other’s parts, before rocking out like a car chase. Speaking of car chases, there’s a great one going on in the background, as singer Ged Hawes recites a check list of the drugs he’s been doing, and then shouts that, “It’s a raid!” After you’ve heard this song once, the next time you hear an actual police siren, don’t be surprised if the driving bass and oooh oooh ooohs of this song’s last 30 seconds are looping in your head for days.
