6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 29th October 2014
After hearing “My Zero”, the catchy indie-pop nugget, I really didn’t expect “Day Of The Dog” to sound the way it did. Although it’s his fifth album, I was previously unaware of Ezra Furman. This album is basically a rock ‘n’ roll album, and I mean proper milkshakes-at-the-diner 50s rock ‘n’ roll, saxophones n’all. “I Wanna Destroy Myself” begins with dramatic Shangri-La’s style drums before ripping into punky rock ‘n’ roll.
There are elements of bands like The Sonics and The Cramps here, but they are few and far between an it’s not speaker rippingly noisy, or sleazy enough. “Walking Into Darkness” is in danger of sounding too much like the Benny Hill theme. The songs are catchy and will stay in your head but I feel that the sax ruins it, too much sax!
