MOON EATER: Radical Rock and Roll Sounds of…: 7”

Mar 26, 2012

The B-side is where this record really gets interesting. The A-side, “Owner Operator,” is a good, generic example of the sort of punk rock’n’roll that was all the rage about ten years ago. The B-side, “Turn off Your Clock,” starts with a driving intro stripped from the Journey playbook (see “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)”) and played through a filter of aggressive guitars. The intro segues into a gruff, heart-on-sleeves garage rock dirge that pulls as much from grunge and Dischord as it does the gunk punk undergut. I bet it causes those spinal chills when played live.
