The Last Powerful Second
by Craig Regala
These guys go for a trimmed-down hard rock that's got a
few grunge-era goodies tucked away, as well as a Clutch
record or two, and maybe an opening gig for Fu Manchu. Much
like up and comers Year Long Disaster, these guys have a
certain allegiance to taunt and classic rock, kinda like
did for their last couple discs. Chunky and riff-filled,
tinged with boogie and without any wanking/jamming (OK,
you get over a minute and a half into "Earthquake"
and there's some nice string tweaking), the 10 tunes on
The Last Powerful Second clock a bit over 28 minutes. I'd
bet they'd be comfortable throwing around '80s rocker covers/memories
(Angel City anyone?
Anyone?!?) as mulch for their songs.
Inspirational line: "Mary-ann was prettier, but Maggie
had the beer." For those about to rock with Atomic
Bitchwax, Paw, Fu Manchu, Amps II Eleven, Shame Club, and
