BOLD SLUG: Touché Honkey: Cassette

Nov 07, 2008

This incredible, awe-inspiring, lo-fi demo tape blew my mind. Out of nowhere (a.k.a. Georgia) comes Bold Slug, a Bananas-influenced sloppy pop band. Rather than record in a studio and later add effects to make it seem lo-fi, this band apparently recorded this sucker live and on a boom box. The tape itself is spray painted and brings back lots of memories from the demo tape era. “Back in the day,” hardly anyone would even review a demo tape.  Now Bold Slug and their goofily packaged tape is the sort of thing we’ve all been waiting for. This is some seriously fun shit here.
