ANAGRAM: “Butcher” b/w “Fish”: 7”

Mar 01, 2011

Another solid outing from Telephone Explosion. “Butcher” is a lo-fi blues-punk number that’s driving. B side “Fish” carries in the same vein with a surf-punk sound similar to the great and underappreciated New Zealand band, King Loser. A lot of fucking reverb and tremolo…while I can’t make out all the lyrics, they’re fucking sordid…like something you’d come across in Herbert Huncke’s work. Pretty fuckin’ rad all the way around.
