The first two tracks on this 7” remind me of the catch-your-breath moments in Scared of Chaka albums. You’re fully aware that the band’s capable of gorilla-with-chainsaw-and-fireworks time, and you know it’s coming, but it’s real fuckin’ nice, just kicking back and chugging some beers before you’re wrestling a rabid, hairy-armed simian of a song through a glass table. And, lookee, the hidden track (on a 7”, mind you) is that gorilla. Bam! Bam! Bam! Features “scab members” (their words) of Witches With Dicks. Neat.
