GUITAR WOLF: T-Rex from a Tiny Space Yojouhan: LP

One thing you can count on in this crazy world is you always know what you’re getting when you buy a Guitar Wolf album. The band’s signature airplane engine guitar sound and rock and roll song structures are in full effect on their latest album in the same way you used to be able to count on The Ramones. “Amoeba Love Song” is a real head nodder for those who are inhibited by not being able to understand lyrics. Vocals never bother me on a Guitar Wolf album, but it’s nice once in a while to be able to attach to something. But the band doesn’t seem to ever slow down. It’s a must-have unless you know yourself not to like Guitar Wolf. Then it’s less essential. –Billups Allen (Guitar Wolf, guitarwolf.net)
