GORILLA Obliterator 1996






Discogs


Artist Biography by

With the members of Gorilla individually working as a doctor, boat-builder, graphic artist and Muzak producer, these Seattle natives breakdown the stereotypes of elderly punkers only being qualified to work at a fast-food restaurant. As see on their first full-length Deal With It, age also doesn't get in the way of playing blazing, dual guitar 60's punk. On top of the added organs as well as a strong influences of The Sonics and The Stranglers, Gorilla would eventually capture this sound on the albums Squid Row Daze (1994) and Obliterator (1996). But thanks to the time constraints of working a professional job, the idea of touring cross-continental was always impossible. The band released Too Much for Your Heat in 1999 and Genetic Joke in fall 2000.

LOUD SUGAR self titled 1990

by request
 

AllMusic Review by

The five-piece band Loud Sugar was certainly aptly named as they served up candy-coated pop confections with some punch on their self-titled debut. With lead singer David Grover and brothers Steven Hitselberger on guitars and William Hitselberger on bass, the band is readily compared to Jellyfish. Unfortunately, they rarely come close to reaching the heights of that band and their new-age platitudes and flower power mantras were thin over the course of the album. "Funky Little Flower," a Hammond-driven, hippie love song is catchy as hell, and that track plus "Instant Karma Coffee House," which incorporates brass and sampled strings, make for an engaging opening double-shot. However, they fail to maintain that momentum, save for the funky, irresistible "Creamsicle." The only major misstep is the awkward environmental paean "No Ozone," but seldom does Loud Sugar rise above run-of-the-mill.

Primitive Enema
Influenced by early U.S. punk and hardcore, vocalist Thom Bone, bassist/vocalist Bianca Butthole, guitarist Blare N. Bitch, bassist Sharon Needles and drummer Jerry Geronimo formed Butt Trumpet in L.A.

DEERHOOF Dirt Pirate Creed 1996





vinyl only release

Discogs


Artist Biography by


The Man, the King, the Girl
San Francisco's Deerhoof mix noise, sugary melodies, and an experimental spirit into utterly distinctive music that made them one of the most acclaimed acts of the 2000s and 2010s. The group began as the brainchild of guitarist Rob Fisk and drummer/keyboardist Greg Saunier in 1994; early releases, such as the 1995 7"s Return of the Woods M'Lady and For Those of Us on Foot, had a more traditionally harsh, no wave-inspired sound, though they also included the quirky tendencies that dominated their later efforts. Vocalist/bassist Satomi Matsuzaki joined the group in time for 1996's self-titled double 7" on Menlo Park, but other members passed through Deerhoof, including Chris Cooper of Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase. The following year they released their full-length debut, The Man, the King, the Girl, on Kill Rock Stars, and the Come See the Duck 7" arrived on Banano a year later.
