Something new from the ever-awesome Castleface this week, this time it's not something brand new but an album from ten years ago by The Traps. It's non-stop blown out lo-fi garage rock with determinedly pounding drums and a horrible tinny, buzzy guitar sound and all the top and mid knocked off the bass.

Something new from the ever-awesome Castleface this week, this time it's not something brand new but an album from ten years ago by The Traps. It's non-stop blown out lo-fi garage rock with determinedly pounding drums and a horrible tinny, buzzy guitar sound and all the top and mid knocked off the bass. It sounds horrible, which of course is just how proper garage rock should sound, and there's no shortage of catchy tunes hidden under the primitivist skeleton punk racket.

The knuckle-dragging simplicity and hair-raising vigour of a lot of the songs are reminding me of Billy Childish's highly influential early bands like The Milkshakes but mixed with a Californian don't-give-a-fuck attitude and some no-wavily obnoxious clanging repetition. Closer 'Beer Pinata' sounds like a drunken lost Stooges practice tape with someone banging together two metal dustbin lids in the corner. Of course I like it.
