Here’s an album of snotty and sloppy garage punk from French madheads Catholic Spray. It’s a murky concoction full of fuzzed out guitar, obnoxiously distorted vocals and breakneck post-punk rock’n’roll like the disobedient bastard offspring of The Cramps, Thee Oh Sees and UV Race. It’s fuzzy and heavy and delivered with a wild abandon which really seems to be the band’s selling point - everything hollering and crunching to breaking point in a sometimes slightly surfy way like early Dwarves or Thee Cormans.
It’s really trashy and snotty, fast and loose in a Tyvek-like way but always with enough of a pop song hidden under the fuzz to keep the listener involved and entertained. It’s kind of making me think of Guantanamo Baywatch if they toned down their surfpop side and had a load of extra reverb and fuzz heaped on. When they do finally take things down a notch on the second side with tracks like ‘Bet That Song Sounds Cool On TV’ they remind me of Strange Boys mixing it up with noise weirdos The Phantom Limbs. Garage rock fans will like this a lot.
