CONTAMINATORS: Self-titled: 7” EP

May 10, 2007

In a blind listening test, you could say, in a Killed By Death sort of way, “Brisbane, Australia. 1978. One of the dudes later joined The Scientists,” and I’d believe you. This is from 2007 and released from Bakersfield and it sounds like that distant-in-time, in-a-void, we-like-Crime sound that collectors go nutty koo koo for. Time’s elastic and the Contaminators show promise, in that Jay Reatard, Oblivians tap-from-the-source, don’t-pay-attention-to-anything-else sort of way.
