SUBSONICS: Flesh Colored Paint LP


In stock


Here are 14 cuts by The Subsonics, known and loved for that Velvet Underground influence and Cramps-style delivery!

Atlanta-s SUBSONICS are a gutter/glam, minimal rock-n-roll trio. This is their 8th album and it-s called Flesh Colored Paint. Like all their previous works, this is a distilled hodgepodge of decades of popular culture and classic literature culminating in a collection of short and groovy shambolar: Chuck Berry, Albert Camus, AM radio rock jocks, Bo Diddley, Golden Age TV, surrealism, Mad Magazine, kung/fu flicks, Herman Melville, Little Richard, self/negating philosophy, David Johansen, The Bible, Dee Dee Ramone, Lee Van Cleef, Cornell Woolrich, advertising jingles, Dada, Carole King, Bugs Bunny, and Casablanca (the poem, not the film). This is a gorgeous mess of an record, and it-s cool. REAL COOL, KILLER.
