GARY WRONG GROUP, THE: Self-titled: 2 x LP

This is a career-spanning double LP collection of The Gary Wrong Group singles and compilation tracks. I love it when bands do that. The Gary Wrong Group plays chaotic punk madness in the vein of Swell Maps with a bit of Butthole Surfers’ downbeat experimentation thrown in. I hate to make such an obvious connection, but many bands try this and TGWG go all in. If you’re into that stuff, you should really check it out, as some of the songs are infections. As a collection of loose songs, it’s a fun front-to-back listen. –Billups Allen (12XU)
