Album Review

Botched Facelift – “Blood Sardine” – [Pet Goat, The]

abacus   1/14/2014   A Library, CD


Char blackened freak noise from local bay area creeper. Reeks curiously of some kind of swamp metal which is ironic cuz it sounds like it was recorded atop an icy crag in the midst of a 100mph blizzard of shredded sheet metal, it stings. Junkyard clang’n’bang throughout, with squirly squalls of distortion writhing and wriggling over a background of insect circuitry. There may be FCC on all the vocal tracks (2-6) but you can’t really tell with all the hoarse screaming and shrieking, well except for the very obvious “fucking whore” and “wallow in your shit” on track 5. The insidious curse and slander does become a bit more apparent also on track 4. The real highlights were the last 2 tracks: 6 an overblown scuzz-beat narrated by pitch-warped madman cackling, and 7 a steel can in a blender drone. I think it made my brain bleed cuz I see red.
