This is The Pre-New. This is what they do. (As well as eating Mars Bars...) Listen to their new album in full here

Wrap your ears round the warped brilliance of The Pre-New and their new album Music For People Who Hate Themselves here.

The band gave us the album to give Quietus readers an exclusive taste before it gets released on Monday via the bands Pre War Black Ghetto label.

The album's reference points include Earl Brutus, glam rock, DAF, The Gun Club, Italians Do It Better, The Fall, Ivor Cutler, Fad Gadget and more, while they take acerbic pot shots at numerous modern tagets. Employees of Foxtons The Estate Agents, Easy-Jet and the users of acronyms take special note.

Watch the Quietus for an interview with Jamie Fry of The Pre-New over the next ten days.
