8/10 Brian Staff review, 02 November 2012
I’m assuming this is the Sic Alps side? It’s a shambling piece of strum-along sixties melodic genius that trumps the majority of the songs on their last album, probably why they left it off. I love the ragged electric campfire vibe of it all. Woodblock, tambourine...get...set...GO! ‘New Trawgs’ is a beautiful clap-along sloooow-groove ANTHEM! Yet another contender for single of the week. Some weeks we have none!Freakapuss are a little too in debt to classic Dylan to ever be the “new thing” but it matters not a jot as their contribution to this 7” is a very heartfelt and authentic pastiche with a real genuine street-corner stoner preacher vibe. The congas and fizzy raw electric blues guitar get full marks, even the singer I’d like to buy a pint for as he captures the spirit wonderfully with a gutsy soulful performance. When retro goes right!
