Always happy to hear a new Part Chimp side. This one is slightly soured by the news of the group's impending split but hey, what can you do...they've had a fucking good run. This one's a split with SXSW buddies Torche who hit us up with not one - but three (!) GBV covers. Noise champs Part Chimp kick things off in their usual no-frills, riff-o-rama style hitting us with two deep cuts - the latter 'The Watcher' hitting on swampy Harvey Milk territory, sounding suitably epic as a result. They always been known to deliver on sludge and volume and it'll be sad to see the lads hang up those Top Twenty guitars and put the Orange amps into cold storage. A single tear of sadness drips from my eye like Mr. T when he sees a kid doing drugs or skipping school. Flip it and Torche impress with their open love letter to Dayton, Ohio's finest indie slackers with three meaty covers from the golden era of GBV's career. They pummel the originals into the ground respectfully. 'Postal Blowfish' in particular sounding fucking blinding. Great split.
