Interpol – A Fine Mess EP review

At the end of the sessions for Interpol’s sixth album, 2018’s Marauder, the New Yorkers had as usual some leftovers, the kind of stuff which back in the late 1990’s when they first began making music together ended up as B-Sides or worse still the the musical equivalent of being buried under concrete as part of a highway.

A Fine Mess is this material gathered and re-worked, a quintet of songs which on merit are far better than the cutting room floor. Not radical departures – this is a band after all who’ve spent more than two decades refining the same paranoia-soaked motifs – both the title track and No Big Deal are worthy additions to their urbane repertoire.
