TURBO A.C.’S, THE: Nova!: 7”

Jul 25, 2002

Well tie me up, gag me, and beat the livin’ snot outta me; if this isn’t the most sonically ferocious 7-incher to ever hit my turntable, then I don’t know diddley-squat, hot damn! The Turbo A.C.’s are one of those musically insane bands who frenetically pour every ounce of sweat, vigor, and energy into creating blazing, bad-ass bombardments of pure, unrefined rock’n’roll meanness. The title track is a raging, surf-influenced stomper about the sensuously curvaceous fur-clad goddess Nova in the original “Planet of the Apes” movie. The flip cut, “Total Damage,” is a belligerent, balls-out blaster that sounds a lot like The Supersuckers if Dick Dale were their guitarist. Sure as shit, the Turbo boys raucously combine the liveliest elements of surf, punk, garage, and straight-out savage rock’n’roll fury, and they effortlessly make it an incendiary sound all their own.
