FUCKUISMYNAME- Catelbow - 7" - MEUDIADEMORTE / X-MIST

click to enlarge Debut by new german band with a cool name (at least i think so) with 4 songs that can be filed in between LES SAVY FAV (because of the song-structures), ROBOCOP KRAUS or the OLIVER TWIST (because of the organ and the vocals...), and ENIAC or TEN VOLT SHOCK (because of the sound & energy!) - but whatever, it's cool!
NEW unplayed/mint copy!

HUMONGOUS- Miniature Pinschers - LP

click to enlarge Who the fuck are HUMONGOUS? A band from Louisville, Kentucky. And what do they sound like? I don't know, they do not sound "like" anyone else. It's Weirdo-Rock, Post-Punk, Garage or something, for sure it's totally original and unclassifiable. In some ways they remind me of TH'INBRED, or as well of DEERHOOF and maybe HALF JAPANESE...
