Mark Henning - Yeah But No But EP

I’m 90% sure that this EP was named after that catchphrase from Little Britain, the oft-fellated, rarely humorous BBC import. No matter, though. Henning’s newest offering is as varied as his last with the seething minimal “Mahlzeit” residing next to the odd Basic Channel shuffle dub of “Skiffle Freak” on the A-side. The flip sees an stuttering acidic “1471” cohere every so often into something special, and the slow-starting “Gooner” never really cohere into much of anything at all. Henning needs to pick “yes” or “no” and stick with it.
