Album Review

Fuckin' Wow! Original GARAGE PSYCH borderline FREAKBEAT recording ca 1968. SINISTER, DIRTY, BLUESY, POST-PUNK...? No pretty melodies and gay bells here. Dirty, grungy guitar base (Tarbox Ramblers, Black Keys), spooky distortions and noise, dark vocals, a sinister atmosphere. The primal repetitive drum-bass lines and angular guitars almost make me think that psych garage was post-punk before post-punk existed. If you had to marry the blues-based psych of... Canned Heat (?) with the angular noise of the Swell Maps, you will get something that sounds similar to this. Throw some Beat lyricism and Jimmy Hendrix influences in the mix. Thanks to Sub Pop Records this Michael Yonders gem is back from the grave. Enjoy!

PLAY: 12, 9, 7, 8

1. Melodic. Slammy bass line on the lead. Gospely psych vox.
2. Mid tempo. Catchy repetitive bluesy guitar line. Urban lyrics.
3. Down dirty guitars. Noisy, no wave. Sinister bass. Builds up in tempo. Angular riffs.
4. Angular groove. Swell Maps. Lots of vocal distortions.
5. Slow. Dissonant vocals and guitar
6. Bouncy rolling rockabillish tempo. Shitloads of distortion.
7. Boogie number. Punchy and intense. Noisy guitars.
8. Bluesy guitar licks. Soft vocals.
9. Rhythmicall a very post punk tune. Repetitive riffs and spooky distortions.
10. Smoky like 9
11. Percussion oriented. Rowdy. Political beat lyricism.
12. Rocks out. Awesome rhythmic guitar attacks.
13. Guitar jam. Jimmi Hendrix-ish.
