SPREAD EGO: Micro-Manipulators: CDEP

The latest in aural terrorism, courtesy of El Monte punk legend Frank D. This latest project plunders sounds he mined in previous bands, resulting in a synthesis of the melodicism that fueled his prior band, the Naggs, and the wild time signatures and off-kilter skronk of his first band, Cascius Clay. The result is a potent cocktail of equal parts Jesus Lizard and later Black Flag, with maybe just a smidge of Slug thrown in to give it some edge. This ‘un is gonna stay glued to the stereo for some time. If you’re looking for something that’s guaranteed to give you a headache in all the right ways, you can’t go wrong with this bad boy.
