Monkey Power Trio – “Tearing Down The Parthenon” – [Pochahontas Swamp Machine]

Max Level   4/19/2010   7-inch, A Library

MPT and their special brand of lovable Monkey Power mayhem, recorded on their 14th year/day as a band. They dive right in with “Fall in Hate”, a straight-ahead rocker with a bad attitude. “Buxom Angels” is a tender account of a teenager’s lab class experiment gone wrong, with a sort of happy ending. “Telephone Hand” is a dangerous load of pounding MPT-style chaos. “Winifred” is a super catchy pop love song; this one will be tough to get out of your head once you’ve heard it. The five-man trio dials back the production polish a bit on this one and whips out a nice raw, alcohol-fueled sound.
