Album Review

Puffy Areolas – “Rock N Roll Express” – [Die Stasi]

Thurston Hunger   8/11/2010   7-inch, A Library

Ohio players piercing the nipple of rock power. Dusty on bass just
eats up songs like Evel Knievel, while drummer beats the living daylights
of anyone who comes close to him, which is probably why they have
three guitarists to cover the collateral damage. The title track spends
a little time mounting up, with some effect driven fuzz chugging, then
in comes Krauty the vocalist (like Frosty the Snowman?!?!) anyways he
starts singing with numchuks screaming out of his tonsils. He ducks in
time to miss the synth sprays that take this track out to a warp speed
death. On the flip, songs spark quicker but still pull no punches…
“$200 Jeans” get ripped to shreads, again the shrill shrieking of Krauty
over some molten neanderthal rock, but before he screams, there is this
sort of flash-forward pre-echo vox that sound like a video arcade game
in Hades. Feedback at the end joins at the hip of the next song, tracking
right into “Teen Scene Cream” which proves again that two chords + infinite
energy will get the job done. Downright, sixy band.
