Patricia Hall and Ian Hicks of Soft Metals have me thinking that that Portland Oregon (where they hail from) might be pretty cool. With a their cover of Throbbing Gristles HOT ON THE HEELS OF LOVE I was hooked. Often of the school of thought that you shouldn’t go f**king with the classics, I was pleased as I compared the two. SOFT METALS takes from what is great about the 1979 version and makes it their own. With their other tunes like THE COLD WORLD MELTS and my personal fave, LOVE OR MUSIC, we might all end up thinking that Portland is cool. Soft Metals certainly is.
