Album Notes
radio add date: December 14, 2012

street date: December 14, 2012

push singles “virginia” and “tired of doing it right”videos for both of those.

“Get So Low” and “El Lagarto” are the ones with explicit lyrics.

Formed in 2008 in the Reynoldstown hood, just a few blocks from an infamous Citgo station where one of the members stopped a man from rubbing lotion on his sports car. Also, not far from a Church’s that was shut down for selling crack across the counter. Bric-o-brac hard, fast/slow post-psyche/punk with different narrators, rattlesnake riffs and a rhythm section that keeps the hookers dancing.

“Classic rock radio fried on bad drugs, blown through a busted speaker. Electric guitar is god here; its frayed melodies slither through muck-thick bass-drums low-end... Deep Purple, Blue ÷yster Cult, Black Sabbath ó cut with grunge-era fuzz and squawk ó Melvins, late Nirvana, late Black Flag. Like skuzzy rock & roll purists like Royal Trux, Glen Iris ramp up the static & the sneer to bring forth the hedonistic filth & the fury of rock & rollís most brazen excesses.” - Free Times

“Aimless, dirt-floor rock y roll from this Atlanta combo, featuring former or past members of the Rock*a*Teens and Brass Castle. Not a lot in the way of production, but ìHorselessî has a nice break that busts up the white-guy-in-A-frame party, and shows these folks have a little dimension to their ways (and that they know when to aim for the ditch when overstaying their welcome seems possible). ìBig Hatchetî jumps up and down on the back porch, blowing out a nylon-string jam with large muff and a serviceable beat. Dingy and doesnít look like much ñ really, the front cover art looks like a prison tattoo of two chicks making out on the roof of a Chevy pickup ñ but thereís small joys inside, which hopefully will be revisited later on to greater effect.” - Still Single (review of “Horseless”)

Guitarist Chris Strawn (Gizzard, Brass Castle) turns up again with a new gig, playing with members of the Rock*A*Teens and Ice Caps. I don’t know anything about the latter two bands, but the sound here is straight-up garage rock, with fizzy, distorted guitars and simple but aggressive drumming. “Horseless” is the noisier and more chaotic track of the two, a bristling rave-up with a solo section boasting a scorched-earth sound; “Big Hatchet” is a bizarre ballad with strummed guitar and assorted extra audio seasoning from a nylon guitar and guitar synthesizer. In honored garage rock tradition, the sound is lo-fi but honest and engaging, and the package’s thrift-store graphics just add to the punked-out flavor.
