THE MOURNING AFTER: Lately 7″
Garage punk stalwarts The Mourning After return for their second outing on Rogue Records, following the “She Left Me Today 7” from 2022.
Side A has the freakbeat inspired “Lately”. Windmilling 12 string Rickenbacker guitars and heavy Hammond organ drive the track along to the Mellotron peppered chorus and crescendo fade out.
The flip side “Quit Bazaar” hurtles a long at breakneck speed with fuzz guitar and Farfisa organ blazing. The pin point rhythm section featuring Scott Cardwell on bass and Stace Austin on drums just manage to hold things together as the double barrelled assault to the senses threatens to leave the rails at any moment.
