MULLTUTE: Dritte: 7” EP

Mülltüte, how I love thee… It’s your filthy guitar that sounds like it’s being played through a AM radio, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. It’s the first thing that drew me to you. Then you have that punchy and crazy drumming that’s fast and catchy. I like to think that the drummer is playing with such fury that the kit is coming apart and spreading out all over the floor. Oh, Mülltüte, let me tell you how much I love your vocals, too. They have that dry rasp, as though your vocal chords are blown out, and yet you have so much heart, you’re still digging deep and spitting them out with that little extra to give them more weight despite any probable health side effects. Not to mention the backing vocals on “Exzess,” and how they give your music a youthful glow. Plus that whistling at the end! Yes, indeed! I love how you go from song to song without much pause, too. Makes me feel like it’s live, and as close as we’ll ever get to really meeting due to the geographical distance between us. There’s the hectic energy of “1000 Sei Ten Hass” and then there’s the rock’n’roll base of “Reibung” that captures the spirit of classic punk. And I must mention the guitar tones that sound all strangled and crazy on “Keine Angst” really get to me. Absolutely love it. Not to mention the way everything comes together at the end of “Neue Kreise.” Such a great record. Mülltüte, you really know how to make my heart go pitter pat. You, more than many others, really know how to play hardcore punk. Take care of yourself, and let’s get together again soon.
