If John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees likes it, so should you… Destruction Unit’s Live In San Francisco is out on Dwyer’s very own Castle Face label, and the record sounds as furious and pulverising as the album cover and the band name suggest. Blasted live action from these Arizona psych-punks.
9/10 Nikolas Lourdis Customer review, 15th May 2015
It all comes down to personal taste, I am no music critic, but here is my story on the album.
I am a student pilot working a full time *&%$@@@ job 5 days a week in gloomy Greece and flying every weekend. Now the difficult part is waking up at 6:00 am on Sunday and when a tripple espresso could not deliver the Destruction Unit could.
Woke up 5:30 and spinned the tunes and by 5:45 it was like I was on their gig in SF with my pyjamas, getting punched by a psychedelic tour de force.
Straight to the airport a reborned spirits for a couple of hours of flight planning, then a 5 hour flight; once home after a total of 10 hours unable to sleep from the adrenaline rush the Destruction Unit delivered again.
Listening to the album for a second time you realise it is not only passionate but unconventionally melodic. Went to bed a very very happy person.
