4 stars "Savant genius from reckless London-based trio...
In a month where 90% of new acts have sounded like Panda Bear, The Arcade Fire and Little Boots, the pleasure wrought by this sui generis collection cannot be overstated. Recorded in a Whitechapel basement by three men barely into their twenties, In the Court Of... sounds both warmly familiar yet dazzlingly fresh. Subserved by bassist Mike Lightning and drummer Darkus Bishop, the damaged brain of vocalist/guitarist Wesley Patrick Gonzalez crafts urban Learesque pop-punk ecstasies about the usual - buying a mattress (Insects), punching Johnny Borrell (I'm in Fighting Mode), falling for your bassist because he has Princess Diana hair (Diana's Hair) - that hook cheekily onto the frayed coat-tails of Barrett, Buzzcocks and Neutral Milk Hotel. Some might find their ramshackle rhythms as insubstantial as a dream, others will be too swaddled in bliss to care." - MOJO
Behind a superficially shambolic sound and a stuck-on sneer, the London band Let’s Wrestle hide a focused pop-punk sensibility and the delightful deadpan cynicism of frustrated romantics. Their front man, Wesley Patrick Gonzalez, thrashes twitchy riffs, blabs about dead princesses and charity shops, bleating his ba-ba-ba’s with the wide-mouthed insouciance of a young Pete Shelley. Fortysomethings will blush at echoes of becardiganned post-punk Peel-show postures, long presumed lost. Young people, primed by exposure to the Arctic Monkeys’ cleaner but comparable kitchen-sink stürm and twang, will wonder why they have been wasting their time stealing anyone else’s songs off the internet. -Stewart Lee, The Times On Sunday
