OK, I'm confused. "Change" and "Strong City", have all the grungey swagger of indie-cum-heavy rock at its most abrasive. But there in between them is "My Friend's House", a song folky enough to suggest the band could make it on the roots circuit. But whatever their determination not to lock into one style, there's plenty to like about Third World Cafe. Catch the torrid guitar solo on "Strong City", catch the lyrics which punch home their 'set the captives free' messages with passion and utter conviction. Four songs (plus a fragment of spoken word) by a band definitely worth catching at a venue near you.
