RIYL: Ty Segall, The Stooges, Crypt Records reissues
Label: Solid Sex Lovie Doll Records
He’s the crazed Canuck, the monster from Montreal, the quack from Quebec. Â Paul Jacobs is the real deal for all you garage punk fanatics. Â Everything you love about Ty Segall’s early lofi years, theÂ heroin-fueled Crypt StyleÂ recordings from Jon Spencer Blues Explosion,Â the depraved shrieks and animalistic howls from Iggy and the rest of the proto punkers…there’s a bit of all those gems in Jacob’s siege.
The guitars batter and clang through the speakers like a savage bear in a cage, ripping and tearing its confines for a chance toÂ destroy. Â My favorite part of The Stooges’ TV Eye is that perfect studio moment when Iggy Pop lets out that ear-splitting guttural screech, eventually inducing a cough that they thankfully kept in the recording. Â Paul Jacobs emits that same kind of throat-wrenchingÂ yelpÂ on his newest single. If this kind of jam is still relevant, it needs to feel real and dangerous. Â Waiting for the Grave is a savageÂ reminder that there’s still stuff out there that can give you goosebumps.
Grab a slab of colored or black wax, and pick between two different covers, both designed by Paul Jacobs himself. Â Can’t decide which one you want? Â GET EM BOTH, numb nuts.
Three rippers, all killer, and definitely no filler!
