- Fear of Suffering by Tropical Trash
9/10 Mike Staff review, 15 May 2012
Holy shit, where did these guys appear from? On this 7” Tropical Trash are here to fuck with your mind with some amazing psychotic slow punk jams. On the first side there's a single lengthy track, 'Baltimore', with a lean, crunchy, Shellac-esque riff rubbing awkwardly against spooky, chiming verses with quite busy drumming, before they abandon melody and structure completely and it all descends into a weird minimal free jazz chunter-fest with mind-melting arrhythmical tinkerings seemingly going nowhere before the drums insidiously build back in and suddenly they're playing the song again. Fantastical.
The filthy tones recall Times New Viking a little, but musically I'd say they're closer to the scuzzy grunge angst of Pissed Jeans, particularly on the flip when they opt for a leaner, faster take on their dirty garage psych-punk sound to squeeze out a mammoth four songs! Things are made a bit more interesting with the inclusion of what I think is a melodica, and also some screechy in-your-face sax action, and the lean downstroke-heavy riffing keeps reminding me of Hot Snakes, but with a dirty, tense aesthetic that recalls Total Control. Closer 'Burning Ghost' even channels Bleach-era Nirvana in its frantic verses.
The amount of pure demented goodness they've managed to distill onto this little nugget of vinyl is blowing my tiny mind. This is a first edition of 200 on white label white vinyl with a big hole and a screenprinted sleeve with an insert, and I'd be quick if I were you because after this one goes home with me that only leaves 199!
