SNUFF: Disposable Income: CD

Jul 09, 2009

Oh boy! Pure pop bliss! This is the follow-up to the Blue Gravy: Phase 9 CDEP that was, in my opinion, above average. They come back with a bang and show their superiority to the world. The songs are as infectious as ever and continue to put my face into contortions, forcing a happy face. The production has been the key for many years. The guitars are thick and add little shards of metal chugging while not being too aggressive. A band with a Hammond organ is all right with me, too! Duncan is still behind the kit, banging away like a spastic monkey while keeping it together to sing the vocals. I like the fact they do experiment and try to add new elements to the music to keep things fresh. They brought in more players this time around to fill the sound to new expanses. It might be blasphemous to say, but I think they are the Beatles of punk rock – music that immediately takes you to another world without leaving the outside area of your speakers with melodies that I would die for to write. If you haven’t taken the giant step and sampled these musical masters, what are you waiting for? While you’re at it, you need to check out Guns n’ Wankers and Dogpiss, which are side projects of Snuff from the past. Why did they leave Fat?
