ERUPTÖRS, THE: Bad Time to Be Having a Good Time: CD

Sometimes you hear a band that you just can’t figure out. The Eruptörs are one of those bands. As far as I can tell, they’re a British sleaze rock band with some faint garage and rockabilly undercurrents. That’s all fine and good. Now add some crazy science fiction themes and a singer who sounds like the spawn of David Yow and Eric Davidson of New Bomb Turks with some extra Jon Spencer thrown in for good measure. It’s an off-kilter mix that kind of grew on me.
