Jolly Jape

(Wormwood Grasshopper - WS08) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two ex-Hammering the Cramps members swapping out moody, seismological guitars for sweeping, flailing, droning keyboards, and their debut bounces along, stumbles and falls on the cleared path, simultaneously aligning it with a loaded lineage and shaking off the shackles. Conversational vocals only hint at a melody, reminiscent of Russell Walker’s work with the Pheromones and the Bomber Jackets. Occasionally a song splits wide open, as on “Just Like Honey, Pt. 2,” the added urgency of the ensemble revealing a whole new vaulted sky under which the band stands alone. Colored vinyl.
