The Mountain b/w Supernatural - Stink Bugs (Swashbuckling Hobo)

stink-bugs-mountainHere’s a freaked-out, lo-fi, mindfuck of a 45 that does Brisbane’s reputation for sonic mayhem no harm. Ex-Hekawis and Shutdown ’66 bassist James Pierce leads the trio on this monstrous single.

A plaintive vocal spars with fuzz-bombing guitar and fluid bass runs on the A side. The flip is another killer with pick-axe guitar chipping away at a dissonant wall of sound. Plenty of psyched-out noise that sounds great at stun volume. For a reference point, check out Telstar Sound Drone from Denmark (only Stink Bugs are a little more rocking.) One question only remains: Where’s the album?
