DAVIDIANS: Self-titled: 7”

Davidians’ channel Greg Ginn’s lean atonality (pre-What The… embarrassment) blended with the wall-of-fuzz assault of Pissed Jeans (including their penchant for goofy song titles: “Bummer Tent” and “Bauhaus Beach-Haus”). Vocalist Cameron Craig sounds demonically possessed while the rhythm section holds down the slippery changes. Across all four songs, Davidians are noisy, spastic, relentless, and utterly satisfying. Recommended.
