VEGETABLE: “Castration Frustration” b/w “Sol” : 7” EP

May 27, 2011

“Castration Frustration” is a nice bit of weirdness with lines like, “All the other boys go pee standing up/But I go through a tube into a cup,” put together with almost hypnotic guitar plucking ‘n’ simple drum patterns. “Sol” is a bit more brooding with solemn lyrics about tapping “into the knowledge/that threatens the male system/Rise on our collective power/And demand real social change.” Interesting sounds overall and they definitely get an A for avoiding conventional punk musical avenues and going outside the box.
