WHORE MOANS, THE: Hello from the Radio Wasteland: CD

At the core, The Whore Moans are a garage punk band from Seattle and a pretty good one. Yet, there’s quite a bit to them. They’re all over the place. They change it up quite a bit, inside the songs, speeding up and slowing down. You end up getting sucked in after a while. Each song is completely different from the last. They’re not afraid to try a sea shanty or a slow acoustic number. The lyrics are good and mostly seem to be about sticking to your guns and living a life of resistance, whatever it may be. They have some of that Seattle/Northwest thing in their vocal delivery, that weird dramatic type of singing that you can hear in Murder City Devils and Supersuckers. The vocals don’t sound like either of those bands, but you can tell that they’ve been drinking some of the same water. Worth checking out. I’ll bet their really great live.
