Album Info : The debut from this chicago quartet. Guitar, bass, drums, singing...and a gong (not constantly, although that would be awesome, just on one song) in the vein of bands you may or may not have ever heard of or care about. Rhythmic, dischordant-yet-melodic, slightly obtuse, rock music from a group of people who've spent time in bands like- Fourth Rotor, He Who Corrupts, Locks, Killsadie, My Lai, Iron Reminders, Kung Fu Rick, and V. Reverse to name a few. 6 tracks from 97-Shiki and a cover song from Carburetor Dung; Opression but with their very own style. Bonus with Bahasa Melayu translation!
Review : Quirky. That’s the only word I could come up with in describing this band’s sound. But I hope you’re not thinking about bands like System Of A Down or Primus. No, this is the good kind of quirky. The musicianship is keen. Very tight. But nothing too flashy either. Imagine if Botch or Daughters laid off the heaviness and instead took up a strict diet of Jesus Lizard. Pro quality cassette and packaging, to boot. Great stuff. –Juan Espinosa (Razorcake)
