faux discx / gringo
reissue of hookworms' debut 12”, previously sold out on sun araw's sun ark label, this is the genesis of the leeds band's punky psych-drone sound.
The singer & keyboard player delivers his vocals like The Gun Club’s Jeffery Lee Pierce on 'Fire of Love' - frantic & impassioned. The guitars colour in & around the lines, informed just as much by Flipper’s Ted Falconi as ‘Sister Ray’. Bass grooves lead the way, sage in their wisdom over which path to take. This is tidy stuff, a purposeful & fully conscious journey into the realms of Zoss.
