Boyracer are from Leeds and play cheesy noise-pop. If one wanted to find
British references, one could think of a hybrid between
Wedding Present and
Jesus And Mary Chain. But they are best defined
with reference to American "lo-fi":
Vocalist Stewart Anderson and guitarist Matty Green are childish hellraisers
on More Songs About Frustration And Self-Hate (Slumberland, 1994),
23 brief songs played with full-throttle clumsiness and naif nerdness.
The mini-album We Are Made Of The Same Wood (Slumberland, 1995)
In Full Color (Zero Hour, 1996) shows more stylistic variety and
a slightly more accessible structure
(Ask Too Much, Small Consolation), a trend confirmed by the
singles West Riding House and Baleen.
Boyracer reformed in 2001 and began releasing a disproportionate amount
of (rather trivial) music, all of them sounding like leftovers:
Boyfuckingracer (555, 2001),
To Get A Better Hold You've Got To Loosen Yr Grip (555, 2002),
Bsides and Besides (555, 2002),
Happenstance (Happy Happy Birthday To Me, 2004).
