1 - PROTO IDIOT - ANDREW ANDERSON - (LP) 
SLOVENLY


The United Kingdom's latest batch of fish-grease filth, including Sheffield's The Hipshakes, have been making sure that we don't mistake ugliness for pleasantries. Proto Idiot (ne Andrew Hipshake) has made damn sure of this with his debutsolo LP "Andrew Anderson" Amidst the Jack Oblivianesque funked-out dirt-blues groove and bedroom punk spazzouts we have tracks here with dreamy back up vocals and "Village Green" worthy melodies making for a brilliant onslaught of pop beauty, combined with all the expletive chaos you've grown accustomed to with the Hipshakes prolific discography. What we have here is a goddamn perfect 12 song LP of "fuck you you bloodycunt," but don't take it the wrong way... it's played in the nicest possible manner. Limited to 500 copies, vinyl only!

2 - PROTO IDIOT - FOR DUMMIES - (LPD) 
BAD PAINTINGS


LP with download code. Proto Idiot are a stupid stomping garage rock three piece from the cosmopolitan garden city of Manchester. They sound like kids in a remedial catch up class trying to cover The Kinks, with a bit of Soft Boys and TV Personalities thrown in for fun. Leading labels like Trouble in Mind, Slovenly and OddBox have put out their past LPs, with the band touring across Europe and the US. The group combines the superstar guitar grooves of Andrew Anderson, the bong-rattling bass lines of Michael Floyd Seal and the tuneful trap tapping of Callum Trent D'Arley. Mastered and made listenable by Mikey Young from Eddy Current Suppression Ring/Total Control, its 13 tracks take in all styles of music from the 60s beat of Idiot Blues to boneheaded boogie-woogie classic If At First You Don't Succeed Try Failing.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Idiot Blues 02. Real Boy 03. Try Failing 04. Add It Up 05. Better Version Of Me 06. Influence 07. We Were Here 08. Razor's Edge 09. I've Been Asleep For Years 10. The Old Ways 11. I'll Never Know 12. Crisis After Crisis 13. You Don't Understand It

3 - PROTO IDIOT - LEISURE OPPORTUNITY - (LP) 
SLOVENLY


PROTO IDIOT - né Andrew Anderson, also of Manchesters THE HIPSHAKES, and his pals Callum Darley (drums) and Michael Seal (bass). "If you like that, then youll love this" is the maniacal chant on "Im An Artist." Hear it enough and youll believe it! The Eddie Murphy parallels shouldnt be too much of a stretch, but if it seems a bit obtuse, think Ray Davies with Attention Deficit Disorder. Better? Either way, "Leisure Opportunity" is no comedy album, per se, but its riddled with humor on both the musical and lyrical fronts. Try not to guffaw at a line that tells you what youre listening to: "DRUMS! BASS! VOCALS! GUITAR!" on "Yes Yes Yes Yes," but the unintentional appropriation of Gloria Estefans "Turn The Beat Around" chord progression on "Angry Vision" deserves a "HEE-HAW!" at the very least, to say nothing of Andersons first person narrative on the "Theme" when he declares "I cant even play guitar." Spoiler: he can indeed play guitar, and the orchestra is also proficient on DRUMS! BASS! VOCALS! (debatable) respectively, with composition / production duties that can cream virtually anyone making kids music today.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Theme, Better Way Of Life 02. Proto Paradox 03. What Is My Purpose? 04. Yes Yes Yes Yes 05. You're The Kind Of Person 06. Do It The Same 07. Theme (reprise) 08. Do You Know Me Now? 09. Angry Vision 10. Living A Lie 11. Chief Kegwin 12. Im An Artist 13. I Know You Know 14. Finally Have To Face Myself

5 - PROTO IDIOT - PROTO IDIOT - (LP) 
RED LOUNGE


Andrew form the Hipshakes getting Wacked in the Head by his instruments and desperatly trying to defend himself! Great trashy Power Pop. But hey, take it from the man himself: "Hello, I am Proto Idiot! I am one third of tard-punk trio the Hipshakes, one half of 60s pop plagiarists the Creep Outs and 100% of the rubbish rock Proto Idiot. That makes me 183.3% crappy. Do the math! In my none music time i read books, feed animals, play football, watch TV and explore my body/mind/soul."
