So far Zig Zags have done everything right. Their debut 7" was a stellar blast of stoner garage swagger that got their name instantly bookmarked in my mental filing system, then they teamed up with Iggy Pop for a sleaze-fuzz romp through Betty Davis's sex-funk classic 'If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up' for a ridiculously good Light In The Attic single that sold out instantly, and now, finally, they've got an album out. Ty Segall recorded it, Chris Woodhouse mixed it, In The Red are putting it out and it's got fucking crystal skulls in the artwork.   It's fair to say that if you like that fuzzy '60s-inspired west coast garage rock aesthetic that's all the rage right now, this will push your buttons. The songs are tightly written and relentlessly catchy and the distortion is all maxed out. Every now and then, particularly noticeable in opener 'Braindead Warrior', they use a weird clipping digital distorto-buzz type sound that adds an element of futuristic filth to their sound which their more slavishly '60s contemporaries wouldn't countenance but is giving my lugholes a right enjoyable workout.   The lyrics are ace too, spitting out couplets like "I was buried alive/I was buried on my motorcycle" with the melodic instinct of Glenn Danzig and the snotty snarl of the dude from White Reaper after a week spent wide awake on amphetamines, whiskey and the very strongest skunk...or maybe a snottier version of him out of Heavy Times. Apart from that, think the super catchy distorto-fests of Ty Segall Band/Fuzz and Bikes and you're in the right ballpark. Fucking excellent band, this is grade-A obnoxious fuzzpop that I could listen to all day. Come to the UK please!
