HEAVY LIDS - Gravity Reversed/This Horse 7” Pelican Pow Wow
New one from the big easy’s premiere label Pelican Pow Wow. This band features more members from Static Static (also see Smelly Tongues) as well as Detonations, Sex Hunter and Die Rotzz (see below) etc. Recorded by Quintron himself at the Spellcaster Lounge! There’s two guitars, a bass and an organ all playing the same punkriff, sometimes with one guitar doing a lead thing. This amounts to some monotonous, hard driving punk. Drummer’s super tight and avoiding fills att all costs. The vocals are mean. This goes for both sides of this 7” and they’re both great. The sleeve is really nice in gray, black, white and red.
DIE ROTZZ vs THE BASTARD SONS OF MARVIN HIRSCH EP Go Ape Records
These guys, = Die Rotzz, have been around forever. They’ve even been to my house!! They’re more like a 90’s punk band to me. Loud and fast and lo-fi and in your face. I prefer the second song, Rott & Roll, which has a King Louie kinda twist to it. The Bastard Sons I don’t know anything about but they do even more lo-fi punk that is rooted in the ‘77 diy aestethic with fake british accent (or maybe they are british?!). Not bad at all. And great rip-off of the Ace Records logo for all you New Orleans r’n’b enthusiasts. (Martin)
