Down tuned garage thump meets the shut-in mentality on this wonderful two banger. The Shrinkwrap Killer, alter-ego of Greg Wilkinson (BRAINOIL, DEATHGRAVE, Earhammer Studios), brings a unique vision to punk being influenced by the likes of WALL OF VOODOO, DEVO, ENNIO MORRICONE, DICK DALE and of course THE SPITS. Parties are for jerks. Stay home and get wrapped up in this one! But make sure to bolt down your TV.
3rd of 5 in the Systemic Surgery series each hand numbered and limited to 200. Hand stamped labels on black vinyl housed in a custom die cut sleeve with a risograph print hand glued to the front. Classy.
Our take: Debut vinyl from this mysterious project helmed by Greg Wilkinson of Brainoil, Deathgrave, and Earhammer Studios. I didn't know what to expect when I dropped the needle on this single, but it RULES. The obvious point of comparison is the Spits given that it’s catchy, synth-infused garage punk and the vocals sound similar, but it’s not a mere homage. While the Spits’ songs are stripped-down and Ramones-based, these two tracks are more complex and in the pocket without losing any of the catchiness. It’s very short, but that’s OK because this is one of those records you’ll play three times in a row every time it gets near your turntable. Note also that it’s limited to only 200 copies, so don’t expect it to stick around for very long.
