CUTTHROAT BROTHERS, THE; Taste for Evil: CD

Wacked-out barbers who also play swamp rock. It’s slimy and off the wall. They list The Gun Club and The Cramps as influences. There is a lot of blood floating around here; no way would I let these dudes cut my hair. Sit in a chair for a close shave—I don’t think so. I think the last song is about Elvis, since it’s called “The King Is Dead.” “Out of Control” flirts with melody but will that be enough to get you in the door? You make the call. –Sean Koepenick (Hound Gawd!, [email protected])
