A FEAST OF SNAKES : "GHOSTS OF YOU / BLACK COAL HEART" 45......
Not at all sure if this callous & raw Texas garage band is still active, but when they were around a couple of years ago they were one of my very faves
. This 45, just put out in Italy on "Solid Sex Lovie Doll" records in some preposterous limited edition, might just be some whumping leftovers or, if we're lucky, a new 45 in its own right. We're not really "on the tip" over here. The record is just an outstanding guns-blazing, dark and noise-stained punk record, with anger and bile in no short supply. I'd be surprised if there weren't 6 guitarists and at least 2 meat cleavers in this band. Remember the Necessary Evils
? Some of the same cast is involved here, but where that band devolved into a cartoonish horror-garage pile of cliches, the 'Snakes are all about the pound, pound, pound and the obnoxo-whine of distorted guitar. The flip is a sort of careening blues stomp that loses control quickly & explodes into a mess of feedback shards. Love it! A Feast of Snakes
