A “featuring members of” band: Triac, ex-Fight Amp, The Wayward. “Choppy” doesn’t cover how the band constructs the riffs they play. In places it’s challenging or unusual, but always dry and stripped down. Side A ends in a way that can only be described as abrupt. The vocals change between a wail or a scream or almost deadpan. Guitar-wise, you might think it’s out of time, but really it’s atonal and wacky. Does this sound interesting? The record certainly is. What it is most definitely not is background music.
