Album Review

Sam Gas Can – “Aswang” – [Feeding Tube Records]

Thurston Hunger   11/14/2014   7-inch, A Library

Side one starts with a baby crying, while possibly
remembering a past-life when it was a man running
through dark woods with joy and fear. The joy wins
out and the baby is placated and then a man has a
brief fit, before the music erupts. In-the-red
number that bounces a round a little bit before
blipping out with stacatto sputter. Really dug
that closing secion (had enough crying babies
in my own previous life).

Side two a muppet monster tries to learn to speak
at the start, croaky throaty stetchy near belches
before a driving little ditty with a police whistle
running the gauntlet between bass and drums
swinging at it like wrecking ball pendulums.
A man screams after swallowing the whistle.
Heavy duty Lightning Bolty proto rock, but
at the end it disappears and a record of maybe
some Mile Davis fusion (sans Miles?) is playing.

These may be riddles that cannot be solved.
But there are clues to Malaysian and Filipino
vampires online at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penanggalan

Hyperactive hjinks here thaT won’t disappoint. The
Tube feeds our ears.
