GESTAPO KHAZI: Escalators: 7"

Jan 11, 2011

The Gun Club and Flesheaters comparisons certainly apply, and like those two bands that drew from older sources of music that shaped their sound, Gestapo Khazi work a magic that makes it sound timeless. A little bit of the blues, some country, a surf guitar style, and a punk attitude, and a group of guys who craft solid songs. “Escalator” cruises at a nice pace. The perfect song for a late summer, hotter-than-hell afternoon. The vocals are perfect: a back and forth between agitation and resignation. If noir films used rock as soundtracks, this song would be a perfect choice. “The Atomic Kind” picks up the pace considerably with a bass that weaves in and out of jittery guitars, and before you know it, the song is over.
