chrome cranks - moon in the mountain
it's 2013 and we have another CHROME CRANKS album to throw on our turntables !!!!!! yes!!!!!!!! after last year's excellent reunion album AIN'T NO LIES IN BLOOD, CHROME CRANKS have released a new tour EP / demos LP titled MOON IN THE MOUNTAIN and as with anything CHROME CRANKS related, it's hands down recommended......
the title track is a side long epic snarl of swampy garage punk noise taken from the AIN'T NO LIES IN BLOOD sessions and the B SIDE is comprised of five tracks recorded during a PEEL SESSION in '95, when the CHROME CRANKS' were at their fiercest, most raw and unruly part of their short lived heyday........ though not really a new full length album or much new material, MOON IN THE MOUNTAIN is still one of the most intense and rockin lps you can get your hands on right now, cuz no one plays garage punk this unhinged and explosive as the CHROME CRANKS........
maybe this new ep will finally cement their place with the greats, like PUSSY GALORE, the SCIENTISTS, feedtime and the CHEATER SLICKS, where they've always belonged........
don't sleep on this one, cause it'll be gone quick.
