WORSE "Rubber Burner" LP

$6.00 $15.00

New York Cityǃˆ_—_•s WORSE have made an LP of noisy rockǃˆ_—_•nǃˆ_—_•roll songs that donǃˆ_—_•t shy away from being punk. The band relies heavily on pop sensibilities while having guitars that blare through sounding not unlike the classic 90ǃˆ_—_•s bands HARVEY MILK and HAMMERHEAD. The slugging-drawls of the instruments bleed into the two-singer vocals and what youǃˆ_—_•re left with is a puddle of punk rock goodness. The arrangements are complicated even in their brute force and the quick psychedelic dives show just how compelling a two minute, three chord song can be. The band has been compared to ǃˆ_—__Floyd the Barberǃˆ_—__-era NIRVANA and FLIPPER, but this LP draws more from bands like COWS or even BUTTHOLE SURFERS than it does the Pacific Northwest sound. The hardest part of describing ǃˆ_—__RUBBER BURNERǃˆ_—__ is that all nine songs stand alone independent of each other. The members of worse have been in bands like NOMOS, BATTLETORN, GRIDS, and SYPHILITIC LUST and all three members played together in NYCǃˆ_—_•s unforgiving SHOXX. ǃˆ_—__RUBBER BURNERǃˆ_—__ was recorded by BEN GREENBERG and mastered by WILL KILLINGSWORTH.
