Hatcham Social have had a particularly odd career to date, they were lumped in with the South London Angular scene from the outset, and there's nothing like being lumped in with that lot to get buried amongst the plethora and almost forgotten. They released a few amazing singles, one average album, and promptly disappeared. It would appear they're back and have gone all synth pop though. It works surprising well, and 'All Summer Long' draws further links between the band's 80s outsider weirdo chic, all disaffected pop melodies, messy black hair and messy black clothes. It's a quite wonderful seven minute long piece of oddball pop perfection.
