V/A - Crust-O-matic!
Jesus Fucking Christ!@ A Crustacean Records
Sampler!@ 57 minutes of Mad Trucker Gone Mad,
Supermodel, Fuzzdolly and Bleed! And others! Am I
dreaming???? God let me be dreaming.
Seriously though, Crustacean Records occasionally
puts out some righteous rock and roll and this is a
collection of it. And other stuff.
It's a fair chance you have never heard of any of
the 12 bands on the compilation, and you may want to
know more about them. But you will probably never see
this compilation in a store, so I am just going to
give brief reviews of the bands so you can look for
their material yourself or see them if they come to
your basement. Or not. In some cases it isn't worth
Mad Trucker Gone Mad--I reviewed an album of
theirs earlier, refer to that review. (That one was
The Probers--Pretty kick ass
rockabilly/punkabilly sound. Good instrumentals, good
Supermodel-- Not Kate Moss, that's for sure.
Fast Rock and Roll with a decided twang. Like the
Charlie Daniels Band hopped up on crank.
Gam--Smarmy and noisy all at once. Sounds like
bachelor pad music for atonal bachelors.
Grid Committee--They like their instrumentals a
bit too much. Sounds prog rockish at times. Kept
waiting for the voice of Geddy Lee (how did it get so
Mucky Pup--They covered a Prince song and a Sade
song I didn't like in the original and still don't
like as covers.
Carl you know Peggy--Fast and rhythmic, at times
like white boy hip hop. Boring instrumental
interludes but the meat of their songs was pretty
Bleed--loud, fast, countrified hard core. Sounds
like Resin Scraper at times. Okay songs and really
Voodoo Love Mint--Slow beginnings lead into
cautious rockin' out. They seem like most of their
songs would be about girls and how they suck. Decent
as far as that goes.
Uncle Eddie--Inane political song. The music
was fine, the vocals were annoying and the song
Fuzzdolly-- kinda goofy, catchy, fast and cool.
Blasted Boyz--pretty good. If Megadeth were
still really cool, they would be too.
