HAMMERING THE CRAMPS

Hammering The Cramps

(Wormwood Grasshopper) Used LP $9.00

A real Tasmanian rager by future members of Drunk Elk that “combines the room pressure of Trapdoor Fucking Exit-era Dead C. with the frenetic psychedelic heft of any great Wayne-and-Kate Village band” promises Still Single, “and the sun-blinded free spirit that rises into the air anytime someone listens to Plagal Grind…. It sounds as if it could have surfaced as some ambitious Xpressway offshoot back in 1988, the presence of four guys with the third dimension flickering on and off, banging on their cages and letting tiny, powerfully-focused beams of light pierce the painted black walls and rip through to a late afternoon blue sky” Edition of 300.
