People keep telling me I would love the most recent Fat White Family LP 'Champagne Holocaust' but I still haven't got round to investigating it. I'm sorry, I expect I would love it but it's hard to find time for things I want to listen to after I've got through all the stuff I'm obliged to describe. Anyway, fate has thrown a split 10" between them and Taman Shud my way, so I get to hear them now.

Their side is 'Wet Hot Beef', an unsettling smack-rock march in three parts, opening with nasal monotone vocals, repeated riffs and a nice line in noisy drones that seem to be coming from everything from trumpets to gang vocals. This part takes up the bulk of their side before bouncing into a weird twangy instrumental with a bit of a surf feel to it, but not laid back Californian surf, some sort of paranoid Toytown psycho-surf that becomes increasingly jittery as it goes along. Excellent. Then they ease us out gently with a lo-fi bit of sadcore with a mumbly voice and an acoustic guitar that sounds like it's been recorded on a dictaphone.

On the other side, Taman Shud are a band I haven't had recommended before but I will give them a try nonetheless. The first of their two tracks, 'The Ziggurat, A Mirage', is a slow-trudging stoner rock dirge with a plodding rhythm section, scything guitars and boomy, reverb-drenched vocals. By the time they stop the guitarist is going apeshit. It's a smoky stoner treat. 'Crime Cycle' is shorter and faster with a shuddering tremolo guitar line and a keys and bass locked together in a primal repeato riff to infinity. These are now both bands I would like to hear more of.
