Review: PROTO IDIOT – Leisure Opportunity LP

PROTO IDIOT
Leisure Opportunity
Slovenly Recordings

Caution, massive use of foreign language, you´ll feel like being a 20th Semester Latin Lectureship student without money, friends and social balance !
PROTO IDIOT are the atonym of sobriety, the hinged-up “Bingo Masters Breakout” loo lid on Mark E Smith´s lavatory, cause of matrimonial trouble when being used by seasoned barroom athlete friends to pee standing up and spice the bowl with a monstrous pile of Nineties Garage Punk Poo.

Review: BOTOX RATS – Nasty Business LP

BOTOX RATS
Nasty Business LP
Wanda Records

If there´s one person in this world (besides my wife, we live in emancipated times) allowed to yell, scream and screech at me, it´s Marco from and to Palumbo-Rodrigues, the number one 8X12 bogey gunner de nos jours and new age “Führers Of The New Wave” re-incarnation troop commander of the next rotten league of meth mucked PUSHERS addicts.
Looking at all the classy musical epitomes that this man has to offer, the real truth behind all those fake news of the day only having 24 hours has to be that it´s actually 72 hours instead. Don´t let the bastards fool you on this !

Review: NASTY RUMOURS – Singles LP

a1328059166_10

NASTY RUMOURS
Singles
Wanda Records

Four multiplied by seven is twelve as Adam Riese and Casino Steel already knew when having developed the formula for the Vinyl Spin Factor reduction in inverse ratio to the consumption of ice cold hop & malt beverages.
An established method now picked up by the Powerpop Heartbreakers of the Bern Razorblade Forge NASTY RUMOURS to collect their Singles released on Wanda Records and No Front Teeth from 2014 to 2016 in the joint-friendly but liver-thrilling 12″ format, less time to turn over the singles, more time to drink.

SMOGTOWN
On Tour Not 10″
No Front Teeth Records

Time to whip your tissues because this is the final Bossa Nova & Goodbye of California´s most finest, the Führers of the New Wave, the unbeatable Snot cracks of SMOGTOWN. Delivered in the wieldy travel pillow format of 10″ we have a 2005 Live Recording straight outta Di Piazza´s / Long Beach here that´s solicitously spit into the drooling circle pit mob including all the early danceflooor killers (plus a double trouble couple of later ones being “Domesticviolenceland” and “Subdivision End Product”) that one could wish for.

SUSPECT PARTS
s/t LP
Taken By Surprise Records

You´ve read all the ´Best of 2017´ record lists already because they´ve been boringly finished by the end of 2017 but you are still clueless about which record you need most ? Then you´ve come to the right place because here at the Buzz we take our time, when it comes to the perfect artistical judgement, the decision of who´s hot and who´s god-awful not.
In this spirit it is now that you´ll read about the undeniable, incontrovertable and invincible one and only best bubblegum damaged record of 2017 in the following lines, the selftitled debut full-length of the SUSPECT PARTS.
Gaze in amazement, you are about to witness the creation of the Snot Pop Decalogue !
Enough of the premature praise, here´s how the story goes:

Review: DEVIOUS ONES – Djarum Summers 7″

DEVIOUS ONES
Djarum Summers 7″
No Front Teeth Records

Do your hear that clapping sound ? Do you smell the taste of blood ? Don´t worry, it´s not another AGNOSTIC FRONT record that I´m talking about, it´s just me spanking my own ass. Amado of the DEVIOUS ONES already got in touch with me many months and moons ago and though I´d already marked writing about them somewhere in the back of my unsorted mind I´ve always been unable to pull it off due to various circumstances and it fell through.
At least until now when Marco from NFT finally released this gem and sent it over forcing me to my long overdue contestation with the DEVIOUS ONES. Fortunately, as otherwise I would have regretted it.

Review: RADIOHEARTS – Daytime Man EP

RADIOHEARTS
Daytime Man EP
Wanda Records

The fifth round of the Long Beach “Hit after Hit” Popcorn Bag Wonders and once again the air is getting rarer for their opponents. Don´t ask me why I haven´t written about those blokes yet, maybe it´s because the almighty Lord Rutledge has already said everything great that is to say about them, maybe it´s just my general work flow modus of only posting reviews every two to four months but at least here it is, my five cent contribution to the musical industry.

Top Of The Snots: THE GIFT – Running Around This Town LP

a1872619803_10

THE GIFT
Running Around This Town LP
Time For Action Records

Alright you Top Boys and Knuckle Girls, I really hope you didn´t set your TFA order yet after the triumphant cry for glory of the WEEKS yesterday because here´s another scorcher comin´ from the same label to whip out your wallet for.
In case you ever thought of Powerpop only being some lame kind of coitus backbeat or of Mod Revival only being fit for crumpled pedantic traditionalists blustering about the sewing patterns of their Button-Down Shirts while sipping on a cup of Earl Grey and nibbling on a piece of malt loaf, then you´ve finally found the definite antithesis to this proposition by means of THE GIFT from Nantes and their actual full-length.
Almost two years after the release of their Debut EP on Une Vie Pour Rien those guys, having emerged from the likes of PROTOKIDS, JANITORS, RUDES and HEADLINERS, are presenting  a record that simply has to be denominated as absolutely unrivalled in it´s sound and attitude, once again giving proof that the TFA commander-in-chief Micha repeatedly evinces the right intuition to find extraordinary bands for his label.

Review: REIZ – s/t LP

a0893294599_10

REIZ
s/t LP
Spastic Fantastic Records / Kink Records

It´s time for the Nudist Colony Bingo-Hop, the latest craze from the secret land of pubic hair where jelly roll grabbing is explicitly permitted and invigorating harmony is the rule of the game. You don´t have to be ashamed of your body mass index here !
If the dancing Heidis on the frontcover got high on orange blossom oil and rocked their collective labrium to CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL is beyond my knowledge though.
One way or the other, it´s the inner appearance that counts and the one of REIZ is the definite antithesis to kermess society, church visits and incestuous boy/girl (from the same ten inhabitants one-horse town) gender meetings at the washing bays of Germany´s gas stations.
