LAMPS: Self-titled: CD

Another band here exploring the gray area between skronk, hardcore, and lo-fi trash rock. Though some of the tunes are quite interesting in their utter tunelessness (what can I say, sometimes I like noise), what’s most impressive is the level of racket they manage to create—the guitars alone sound like two sheet metal airplanes colliding in mid-air. I like it lots, but I’m not betting on ‘em getting much air on KROQ or Indie 103.
