UZI RASH: Coreless Roll Can-Liner: LP

Jul 29, 2013

I believe this band’s been around a spell, but this is the first time I’ve come across ‘em. They specialize in a brand of noisemaking that seems to be aimed at those whose extracurricular activities involve modified sugar cubes and pieces of paper that have been renamed “blotter” and “microdot.” Like some unholy Beefheart-Los Angeles Free Music Society jam-band alliance from hell, they drop one tune after the next of lysergic-soaked racket, bouncing from acoustic, vaguely country western-tinged electric slide blues tunes to stuff that’d make the Butthole Surfers tilt their head sideways in wonder. Probably not for everyone, I reckon, but I’m diggin’ the hell outta it.
