Album Review

Gary Wrong Group – “Knights of Misery” – [Jeth-Row/Total Punk]

abacus   10/29/2013   12-inch, A Library


Creeping out the mud of Mobile River, Alabama… squirrely burly synth-punk nastiness to leave a bitter taste in the back of your throat. Not particularly hard hitting, just not particularly giving a fuck; basic grit riffage and grimy grimacing vocals from frontman Gary Wrong aka Captain Beyonce with extraterrestrial electronics on whirligig synth from Steve Kenney of Pterodactyls, and none other than Mr Quintron himself supplying organ and trading drums with Mortal Combat metalhead Benny Divine who also plays casio. Everyone’s tapping some sort of keys, especially on Saint Theo, packing on piles of organ soullessness and loopy droopy keyboard tones. The tracks mostly just plod along in nihilistic contentment. A lot of moonshine and ditch weed fueling this jalopy. As they say, “Whatever it is, I’m against it.” No goats were molested in the making of this record…
