This is a fucking great single. They look like a nice bunch of dudes too, undeniably funny and endearing sleeve photo. You don't quite expect the psychotic, twanging nihilist discord that spills forth from this orange disc but by heck, that's what you get. Lurching some place between the electrified chug of Total Control, The Gordons and more modern NZ noiseniks such as Die! Die! Die!, this lairy, insistent rumble of psycho-surf destruction and misanthropic primal menace is a complete tub-thumping delight.
Side two is just as good because it employs exactly the same grimy monotonous robot rock template on 'Three Thumbs Up' and does it with aplomb. Bit of a 'Youth of America' era Wipers thing in there. Also because it has a third track, the hilariously titled 'Ask My Old Roommate, Man'. Another granular, relentless piece of dirt-rock, it's the most melodic piece of noise-addled adrenaline here that also reminds me of the classic churning tornado-distortion sound deployed by bands such as Ligament or Drive Like Jehu but given a spidery ghost-rock dusting. These guys are super fun, I'd have snapped this up like a dog were I still in the game of collecting indie rock 7"s.
