THUNDERING ASTEROIDS!: “Polybius” b/w “Hi-Keeba!”: CS

Apr 28, 2016

I am writing this on the day the band plays its final show approximately 4,900 miles from where I sit. My entertainment should come in the form of this two-track cassette, released to commemorate the end of the road for these self-proclaimed nerd punks. Unfortunately, neither of the tracks have the same charm that I’ve heard from the band before. Both songs sound a bit ragged whilst Minn’s voice seems to have lost its smoothness, coming across as more gravelly. I really have struggled to get into this, so I sought, and found, solace in The Nerd Punk Guide to the Galaxy, the band’s only album and a much better example of what it can do. I will miss the internet searches to try and understand the myriad references rammed into each and every song though. R.I.P.
