Birthday Party fans, say hello

djgolf

Brisbane, Australia band that wears its influences on its sleeve - those influences being the Birthday Party, Cramps, Gun Club et al. The guitar sound on this record is really similar to that on the album "Room Of Lights" by Crime & the City Solution, a band that included several B-Party members. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; while not entirely original, the hooks work, the energy is there and it's overall a fun listen. Plus you gotta love their name.

They Say All Music Guide

Making their intentions clear with the bleak opener “Howlin,” Slug Guts take an intentionally crude and nihilistic approach to Howlin’ Gang. Like their Australian heroes the Birthday Party, they concentrate on the dark, fractured end of post-punk, riddling the 13 songs with tom-heavy, oil-can percussion, jagged guitar chords, meaty basslines, and snarling baritone vocals. Because the album was recorded with little overdubbing, in only a week, empty space plays a big part to give the feel of a band playing live in an open warehouse. The slow and sleazy pseudo-ballads “Down in the Mornin’ Sun” and “Angie” (not the Rolling Stones tune) fill the void, with guest vocalists Angela Bermuda of Circle Pit and Sarah Spencer of Blank Realm. Otherwise, it’s sleazy, cacophonous bashing for the majority of the generally disturbing, and immensely satisfying, remainder. – Jason Lymangrover
