9/10 Ant Staff review, 30 July 2009
Oh Man the latest Shit and Shine record is totally awesome. From the moment I hit play I'm smashed over the head with some ugly, nasty overloaded distorted repetitive heavy rock music. 'Have you Really Thought About Your Presentation?' is a blistering opening track to say the least. It's nuts! It's ridiculous and I LOVE IT!
I could quite happily leave the record there and I'd die a happy man BUT there are another 19 tracks of mayhem, weird samples, noise, feedback primal drum pounding. It sounds like a bunch of neanderthals getting wasted and making a pretty messed up noise record. There are some quite brutal and harsh moments on here with pretty much everything being in the red. Having said that there is a sense of control and not just total chaos. A lot of the rhythms are very precise and the drumming is pretty damn tight. Some of the album is so over the top it's almost cartoon-ish and you get a distinct sense that these guys really don't take things too seriously. It's totally absurd and I get the same joy and twisted comedy fun that I got from the Butthole Surfers way back.
Man this my even be their best one yet!!!! CD and 2LP to follow on Riot Season and you need it in your life. '229 2299 Girls Against Shit' is mastered mighty loud so watch yer speakers!
