DEEP CREEPS: Crown Gall: Cassette

My wife thought I was crazy when I suggested she eat a clove of garlic to get rid of a cold she felt coming on. She did, though, and the cold went away. It’s no surprise that Boise three-piece Deep Creeps chose a head of garlic for the cover of their tape: the music on here, what with its post-surgery Charles Maggio-esque growls, breakneck thrash pace, and alternately heavy chugga and/or dentist drill guitars, is the perfect visual accompaniment. Take a dose of it. It might not go down easily, but it’ll right what ails ya.
