In a strange hybrid of all things experimental, (and possibly a more experimental name to boot) US quintet Duck Duck Goose manage to contain all the chaos their music screams, and fit it into six tracks.
Noise, Noise, and More Noise does exactly what it says on the tin, offering a short and sharp burst of raw energy on this EP. Sounding somewhere meshed inbetween UK metallers: Architects, Take A Worm For A Walk Week, and The Casino Brawl, this offering rips and tears at the ears, and basically skullfucks them with brilliantly controlled noise.
It can’t help but be somewhat random in places, in particular intro track Brother John’s Revenge, and the strangely named Wonderful Wizard Of LSD, which features a soothing interlude of acoustics and somewhat softer vocals. The dual guitars seem to contrast each other, but it gives the record a real kick, as there seems to be so much frenzy and energy going on.
Stow After The Bar is definitely one to get ahold of, maintaining a great upbeatness all the way through.
The record is indeed as crazy as the name, but if the CD quality is anything to go by, this band should be excellent and so energectic live, this is one hell of a stab in the face.
