ELECTRIC BUNNIES, THE: Chewing Gum: 7”

Jul 24, 2008

This was a definite surprise! The title track on here vaguely reminds me of the chorus of “Pepper” by the Butthole Surfers, but reworked in a jangley, minimalist via the Velvet Underground kind of way. The other track on the first side is a fuzzed-out little rocker. The third one is a spastic blast of rock that emphasizes, what I’m guessing to be, their affinity for aural dissonance. The song wrapping up this slab of wax is a Nuggets-esque piece that displays some VU-type noise without letting it engulf the song. I’m thinking that I’ll be spinning it every now and again.
