Waves Of Fury - "Thirst" CD

The charmingly-titled "I Don't Know What To Make Of Your Fucked Up Friends" sums up this brief 30-minute album. It's a brass-infused classic rock banger. The 60s-inspired sounds continue with "Businessman's Guide To Wtichcraft", which could be the Brian Jonestown Massacre on a Supremes fix. Other journalists have described a distinct Jesus & Mary Chain-ishness here, and perhaps there is a certain amount of similarity in messiness that the bands may share, but this is more Phil Spector on an acid trip with Anton Newcombe, in my playbook. Or maybe a jubilant Bobby Gillespie and Primal Scream on different drugs.

Good, fun, and wild out-pop from a new Bristol, UK act. I enjoyed it. (Alive Natural Sound Records)
