New Canadiana :: THIGHS – THIGHS
Comparisons fail me. Jesus Lizard? Someone said Krautrock; but who doesn’t say that anymore? Dave from the Soupcans said “they just make you suck that one note over and over, like: suck-suck-suck-suck, suck-suck.” Then Jesse Locke told me that they sounded like Edmonton. Sure, half the band is expats, but I had no idea Edmonton sounded like Satan himself sewed together the attitude of early post-punk with the palsied energy and noise of spazz-punk. There’s some heavy hypnosis at work, convincing you that this sinister wave of noise is birth by a Toronto supergroup: Pants and Tie, Young Truck, Odonis Odonis, and the late/great Danger Bay.
