HEROINE SHEIKS: Out of Aferica: CD

Aug 12, 2006

A bit of a shock for me ‘cause there’s a touch more “rock” in their sound here than there was on their debut, Rape on the Installment Plan, which was the last o’ their releases I heard. I gotta say, though, that they are very careful in their usage of said “rock” to compliment a sound that remains as addled and deranged as they, or Shannon’s earlier band The Cows, have ever produced. The song dynamics are a lot more across the map, meaning things are considerably more varied than a constant pummeling, although one listen to “Cock Asia” will demonstrate they can still whoop ass with ease. Good, good stuff. Oh, and yeah, there’s some buglin’ on here.
