What does that name mean? It's somehow horrible and nasty, as though it slipped greasily from the pages of Roger's Profanisaurus. Eww. Anyway, this lot play noise-rock. Noisy, noisy, noise-rock. Oftentimes their songs appear to have been constructed using sped-up Helmet riffs and the sound of one big bag of wrenches colliding with another big bag of wrenches. Atop these, variegated vocals howl and yammer. Usually it's enjoyable, occasionally it's not ('I Do Not Belong Here' seems almost deliberately facile...), and sometimes the band lob you a curve ball like the melodious 'Nothing's Ever Good Enough Scrambler' which starts off sounding like a weird mix of Handsome, Superchunk and Dynamic Truths, or 'Katy Perry' which is almost like some twee indie pop band getting slightly sinister. Overall it's perhaps a bit too patchy to qualify as 'essential', but as with most things Reptilian barfs up it's at least worth a spin or two online before you make your own mind up. Particularly, that is, if you have more than a passing fancy for bands like Pissed Jeans, Throat or thee almighty Cherubs.
