DEMENTED ARE GO: Live and Rockin’: CD

I remember Gator from the long-gone Bea Pickles playing these guys for me on the way to a scooter rally both our bands were playing and wondering how that singer managed to do that with his voice. Seriously, it sounds part Tuvan throat singing, part tracheotomy side effect, and it fits the band’s variation on the psychobilly template just fine. This is a reissue of a live album originally on Link Records, featuring the band tearing through songs with such charming titles as “Human Slug,” “Pervy in the Park,” “Sick Spasmoid” and “Anal Wonderland.” The performances are spirited, the tempo revved up, the sound great, and the band in very fine form. Can’t ask for much more than that, I reckon.
