Lunch starts out strong with a jangling, psych-garage sound, the singer lamenting the popularity of a fellow named Johnny Pineapple with a frustrated shout, setting the tone for a fun, trippy, psych garage ride. The next song builds on this, adding more distortion to the vocals. They prove themselves contenders, but they start to lose momentum on the second side. The first side rocks harder and with more bite. Don’t get me wrong, I play the whole tape every time but the songs don’t stand out as much. However, this is their first full-length and they end on a high note with the driving stomp of “Hex Meat” showing a lot of promise.
