These guys are great. Raw, wasted Flipper/Black Flag noise, with it's own heart. I know next to nothing about this band, but they are kicking my drunk at 10 am ass. I'm a 32 year old canuck skateboarder dad that works the graveyard shift. Wicked! Anybody else heard this, or seen them live?

If I recall correctly, this band has more than once unsuccessfully attempted to play gigs here. I hope it works out for them (and us) someday.

http://villagevoice.com/nyclife/0533,musto,66911,15.html

Of course there are more tastefully individualistic divas du jour—like the Black Eyed Peas' FERGIE, who, at Paper magazine's dinner at Luda in her honor, was sweet and effusive in all her Heatheretted-up glory. She was so sweet, in fact, that I hated to corner her with a pesky question involving personal hygiene. Had she seen the photo from their recent San Diego concert, linked on gawker.com, in which a giant, crescent-shaped stain jazzed up her pants crotch? (Reports claimed that since she and the Peas had arrived late, Fergie was in a bind and had to relieve herself onstage.) "I had a bad day that day," she told me, not moistening—or clarifying. Point taken—but did the Black Eyed pee? "No!" she exclaimed, half convincingly. "Well then," I generously stammered, "maybe it was perspiration?" She half nodded, still smiling, but being as much of a gentleman as she's a lady, I didn't pursue that or other far worse options. (You know . . . never mind.)

Gotta be one of my favorite records/bands of the last while. I love the wide-eyed No Trend/Flipper vibe and simpleton lyrics. Really a punch in the balls. I do have a feeling this stuff is smarter than its letting on. Who knew record-collector rock could be so much fun!

this band is fucking great. swell guys, great music...anything that goes after drunks with guns, flipper, stickmen with rayguns, etc. is fine with me. they're sick live, too...but their sets are always cruelly short.

I do have a feeling this stuff is smarter than its letting on.

yeah, i mean it's a pretty deliberate attempt to mine sexual frustration/torpid deviance for lyrical content. works wonder, i say.

adam (adam), Saturday, 28 January 2006 00:41 (8 years ago) Permalink

Oh Yes
'I'm Sick' is Killdozer and Flipper fkinFang and Black Flag. The 'lyrics' are way more Killdozer i.e funny as fk . It's a guy screaming about his runny nose , his dehydration and his high temperature. The guitar is an even more free form Greg Ginn with uncontrolled feedback everywhere.I always thought Ginn was the shitttiest and best guitarist ever. Sloppy but angry. Frstrated at his lack of finesse?

'Boring Girls' ....laugh, laugh to a Drunks With Guns one chord-a -thon about the beauty of the ladies.

My favorite new band.

The last time punk rock decked me in the head this hard was Fucked Up.

The Ginn-style guitar is so fucking visceral, and the rhythm section sometimes lopes into Jesus Lizard territory.

It's so cool to see bands revisiting the weird side of early-80s hardcore.

Listening to the 7" from Sub-Pop right now. "Don't Need Smoke..." is just killing it right now. Pissed Jeans is like what I hoped the Dirty Faces album on Brah would sound like.

Dan Floss (Dan Floss), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 02:49 (7 years ago) Permalink

yeah it is a really good 7". "Don't Need Smoke" starts out like it's on the wrong speed but by the end it's a fuckin' tornado.

Shallow is my most listened to rock record in a long time

re. Clockcleaner, I think so too, but it was difficult on cursory examination of Wikipedia etc. to confirm that was the case. Anyway they were good too!

Clockcleaner singer dude subsequently did Puerto Rico Flowers which very v little rock and lots of goth. have a feeling that too has come to an end

Clockcleaner definitely had a goth thing going on, but more on the Cramps/ Gun Club end of the goth-psychobilly spectrum I would have said.

jesus lizard are one of those bands i know i am wrong for not loving more but tbh have always prefered most other amrep to them. find the bass too metal funk-ey or something & hasn't aged well, compared to halo of flies for example. kind of feel the same way about butthole surfers. i def prefer pissed jeans but obv my mileage varies, i wasn't listening to any of this stuff in the 90's

saw them last week and korvette has to be one of the best frontmen going. his dance moves/stage antics are sick and he started off with a rant about the weather, about god trying to keep them from getting to chicago, that ended with him cursing god and demanding to be struck dead on the spot. he also tore his tshirt straight down the front literally as soon as the band started playing. the next day i was looking on youtube trying to find clips to show my wife how great he is but couldn't find any that measured up to what i had seen.
