Album Review

Feeling of Love, The – “OK Judge Revival” – [kill shaman]

Thurston Hunger   5/18/2010   12-inch, A Library

Listen now to tomorrow’s Messthetiques? Franco-frantic panic rock. Sacre rhythm and bleus? All for one and one-four-five. Aiming for le roast beef and us hamburgers, singing in English and swinging with the fine Californian label Kill Shaman. Hell bandleader Guillaume Marietta even saves American mouths from le butchery by just going by his first initial. The album seems to be swimming with moustaches and cops, it might be a sting. The keyboards
escaped from the circus (and at times miss their mother the calliope). The guitar is mixing absinthe and Budweiser. Most of the numbers achieve a Brian Jonestown Massacre haze, pulling enough redundant riffage from the rock ‘n’ roll closet but messing it about with frayed wires and dirty vocals to give it all that 1:30 am and the club vibe. A couple of odd balls, “God Willing” is a suicide watch for a Velvet Underground fan and then “(Am I) Fading Out” rides a sped up gamelan into foreign territory. Play this lp for go-go dancers about to pass out and spy guitarists who lost their passports.
