GORILLA ANGREB: Long Island b/w Supersyn: 7”

Imagine, for a second, that it’s 1977. Imagine that L.A.’s X had never existed and that Dangerhouse never put out any records. Imagine X being Dutch and, instead of incorporating the Blasters, they had a time machine and what provided the backbone to the band was something approachable, yet hard and more steely, like a subtle cross-pollination of the Go-Go’s and Amde Peterson’s Arme. If I haven’t completely confused you by now, Gorilla Angreb take the pure discovery of long-discarded treasures (even by the bands that did the pioneering) and make you feel like you’ve never heard something quite like this before. It’s not quite pop. It’s not easily classified punk. They create mid-tempo, faultless songs that I just want to listen to over and over again.
