SWITCHBLADE KID, THE: Self-titled: LP

Mar 07, 2013

Garage scene figure Harry K from The Angel Sluts and Turn-It-Offs delivers a wholly unbearable, jumbled mess of an album only for his preexisting fans. Not much rubs me the wrong way musically, but this record epitomizes the holier-than-thou, egotistical mentality that critics of the Memphis garage scene typically overstate. There’s no overstating how trying this LP is, though. Destined to languish in the bottom of garage punk collector bins for all eternity, someone entered the studio either too soon or with an overabundance of false confidence when these tracks were laid down. Yuck.
