- Gentleman's Grip by Puffy Areolas
Oh shit yes. I love this kind of thing. Three blistering cuts of totally unhinged and ferocious garage punk here from Puffy Areolas. Acid punk turned up to 11, these guys aren't scared to get a bit psychedelic but they never lose the visceral ferocity that sets them apart. We've got three tracks here. Opener Gentlemen's Grip takes up the entire A side and is a total scuzzy freakout that sent Phil diving for the volume control. I don't think he was too wild about me turning it back up again but it had to be done. This is like if Jon Spencer and the Circle Jerks put together a Hawkwind tribute. If you're into records on Skingraft and ThreeOneG this'll push your buttons...but then you're probably the kind of person who already knows that HoZac are mining an exceptional seam of unhinged garage punk at present. Flip it and there's another, shorter, vocal track which sounds like the Dwarves in a cement mixer and then things are brought to close with a frantic surf-garage instrumental. Nice druggy artwork too. These guys rip.
