Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2004-07-18 
Now this is where “garage rock” should be heading! Totally damaged keyboard fucked-uppery from who knows where. Some unholy mess of Pussy Galore, Devo, Halo Of Flies, and more current Providence dementia via Load Records.

(((1))) Could’ve been some beyond fucked-up mix of Rodan, Jon Spencer’s Blues Explosion and Devo? Yeah, something like that.
(((2))) Speaking of Devo total 80’s new wave weirdo keyboards mixed with severly messed up Billy Childish fronting Pussy Galore in a So. Cal mall after some nukes were dropped on it.
((((3)))) Over-modulating keyboards, distorted & tweaked guitars, and just awesome raw vocals. Severely rockin’!
((((4)))) If you thought the last tune was “way gone” you ain’t heard nothing yet! Jon Spencer fronting Unsane jamming with Billy Childish, Thurston Moore and Von Lmo? Twisted!
(((5))) (At 2:26 FCC saying "FUCK YOU" over & over) Creepy gothic organ leading into a distort-o-rama version of Love mixed with Pussy Galore. Lots of electronic tweakery here.
(((6))) Ouch! UFOs from satan’s anus - annhilating your eardrums with fucked up garage rock and freaked out, looping electronics.
((((7))))) The Dickies mixed Big Black and some Load Records damaged keyboards/electronics. Verrrry nice!
(((8))) Pretty similar to the last track but steadier in the basic garage rock formula of 1-2-3 chords but those keyboards! Wow...just listen to ‘em! What a demented circus this is!
(((((9))))) Super fast riffing ‘ala the Ramones or the Dickies on 78 RPM mixed with distorted vocals and more noodling synths/keyboards.
(((10))) Spacey, UFO landing electronics then Jon Spencer-like voice that shouts out rather than is singing with music in the background. Then it gets all space-rock/prog-like with lots of bottles being broken & other stuff being pounded on
