GESTAPO KHAZI: Self-titled: LP

These guys sound like they’re well versed in a lotta different strains of noise—late period L.A./early suburban art-punk, post-punk, even Morricone-influenced surf rock. The result is music that can hold its own on a bill with, say, TSOL or 100 Flowers, yet is much more sophisticated than those who usually pooh-pooh punk think is possible.
