Red Mass- Little Man 10"
"What lies within this fancy pack is some rickety-stripped down chameleon rock by Choyce and Co…an ever revolving cast of hundreds in this band/movement…that sounds different every time they press something. This Mass is down to a three piece, featuring The Roller and …. Track one, "Little Man" is a Melchoir feeling art-stomper with odd guitar squiggles and some accompanying flute (?!). Kinda like some early Dexy's Midnight Runners or another hobo-soul-punk throwin’ it down with a ranting Nick Cave. I’m trying to remember all the bands that played on The Young Ones… John Cooper Clarke? ...one of those that wasn’t the Damned or Motorhead…yeah, this reminds me of it. Weird. From there it’s some great post punked damage thrown into a rockabilly stew. Can’t explain it, really. It’s its own thing. The vaudevillian murder ballad, "Skater", rubs like a Deadly Snakes encounter, but with a whole buncha’ clutter getting scrapped about. Even gets a bit surf-y in the out. I’m digging it because it sounds like nothing else right now. At least in this “scene”. Flip it for an industrial throb that smacks about some Fifties R&B in "Red Light". Brings me back to that last Luxury Rides single, only wickedly retarded. Then it hits me. There’s an Electric Eels cover at the end. F.U.C.K. A "Refrigerator" full of Windex piss and electro-trashed glitch. Surprised Pink Noise isn’t in on this. Hell, they might be. Volt fans take note…this one's for you. Raping Dead Nuns. Scratch that itch. Go Red Mass. One bad ass awkward slab of meat. (RSF)"
