6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 24 March 2011
Night-People return with a couple of newies, this one being a split between Iowa's Wet Hair & Sydney's Naked On The Vague. I have faint memories of hearing both these duo's in action but my brain ain' t helping much with the details so I'll have to take this one on face value. First up we have four psych tinged compositions from Wet Hair. Opener 'In The Garden Of The Pharaohs' and 'The Labor Of Love' are almost pop songs, albeit with weird deep vocals that bring to mind Ian Curtis singing over a Lonesome Organist jam. It's OK I guess but it's the loose instrumental groove of 'Inertia' that really hits the spot. It almost gets lost in it's own awesomeness. Naked On The Vague share some aesthetic similarities with Wet Hair which makes them good bedfellows for a 12" split outing. These kids have more in common with Pocahaunted and come across as a more authentic psych outfit even if there's only two of them. Everything sounds ghostly, distant and reverb drenched. The tunes are there though so it works well and the vocal drawls give it a sinister edge lacking from Wet Hair's material. This one's on transparent vinyl. Schweet!
