MP3: Just say yes to Slug Guts!


More demented
Australian scuzz-rock in the finest Oz tradition.


By Blurt Staff



It’s the band name that gives on giving long after its
presumed shelf-life has expired: Australia’s Slug Guts, whose
moniker bears tasty echoes of classic Oz bands of yore (e.g., King Snake Roost,
Grong Grong, Slub, Thug, etc.). They have their third album, Playin’ in Time With the Deadbeat dropping
July 24 on Sacred Bones, and the first track unveiled it the delicately-titled,
desolation-twang rocker “Stranglin’ You Too”:

The album is the followup to last year’s Howlin’ Gang and according to the label
it “sees the band release a record that sounds menacingly desperate, ugly
and malnourished. [It draws] on Australia’s
rough and agitated pub rock history, taking dregs from Australian cult
icons Feedtime, Venom P Stinger & The Birthday Party. Playin’ in Time With The Deadbeat was
written during a year which saw members of this seven piece endure trips
to the mental hospital, jail, court trials, death, rehab, and bouts of
violence following thousands of kilometers spent in a van.”


Well, all right then! That’s the Australian music we know
and love. (Check out our Oz rock special in the latest issue of BLURT for
