Rating: 4/5

On side A of PopShop's new double single 'William, It Was Really Something', we are treated to something a little more subtle than their previous efforts. Whilst the almost mathematical angular riffs and rhythms that make their usual work so unique and enjoyable has been done away with, the track is no less genius than anything else they've created before it. Stripped of the standard aggression, we are left with a heart warming ode to another band held in high regard amongst South East London scenesters, William, of course. You'll be happy to know that AA side radical is a return to form and then some, with nasty dissonant guitars and catchy melodies sharing the same aural space once again.
