CRYSTAL ANTLERS: Self-titled: 7”

Jan 07, 2008

Side A is a seven-minute original and I’ve never heard a band capture the sinister riffing of what I term, The Stooges “slow jams,” as well as Crystal Antlers. Manic feedback and all. Finally, someone cops the other side of The Stooges. More Funhouse than Raw Power. Vocally, it’s a lot screamier than Iggy, which is just fine by me. I think if you saw this live, your mind and your teeth would instantly shatter. Side B is a cover of “Parchman Farm,” which is unnecessary. Besides everyone knows it was done definitively by Poison 13. I think we can close the book on that standard.
