This is the second 7" I've heard by these lot after the one on Dusty Medical, and they're setting themselves up as a pretty solid band in the whole distorted, garage punk rock arena. Featuring folk from Tyrades (no idea) and CoCoComa (oh yeah), "Tourettes" is the a-side here and it is a true blaster, with wildly jagged guitar and muffled, emphatic vocals. It sits nicely alongside bands such as DC Snipers, a prime example of the beautiful ugliness that is punk rock. "Fight Like A Man" is a touch of madness, and it cranks things out on the flip. The eerie beginnings and darkness bring to mind a bit of a reckless Gravity Records sound (pardon my reference points), with some pulsing fx-ed up yells, and some beserk saxamaphone in there at the end. Off kilter and fascinating. Two good sides of differing music here, worth a look if you like your garage stuff a bit wonky.
