It's clear that Steven was trying to get a little more serious on The Finishing Line, attempting to make an album that punches like at least a middleweight, not like the stick and move approach of the first album. He almost succeeds in making it work, but the album lacks much of the fun of Batteries' debut, skimps on the synths, and goes too long between good hooks. Without those, the album tends to blur together in a noisy sonic blare that has plenty of energy, but precious little else to hang onto

Batteries (Artist) Format: Vinyl. With the "Devo plays Queens Of The Stone Age or vice versa" mantra still a loose guide, The Finishing Line opens with the vague reassurance of lost Punk 45 "The Fall-In-Love Club" before the safety is removed for the unhinged journey ahead. Remnants of Bill Nelson's Red Noise, Cardiacs and early Blur b-sides abound in "Mutual Enemies" and "Hidden Tracks" while there's edgy American metallic synth punk in "Pigs", "Pankhurst" and "Children Be Normal" which recalls Jesus Lizard and Brainiac.
Mutual Enemies + We Are The Damage. The Fall-In-Love Club.
Record Store Day 2016 release! Steven Clark (. a Sci-Fi Steven from disco/punk legends bis) returns with his one-man-band project Batteries what seems like seconds after last year's self-titled snappy New-Wave debut. The debut's dystopian potential future themes remain, but this time both the musical and lyrical safety nets have been removed. With the "Devo plays Queens Of The Stone Age or vice versa" mantra still a loose guide, The Finishing Line opens with the vague reassurance of lost Punk.
