The Rippers - A Gut Feeling LPLabel: Slovenly
Slovenly Recordings is proud to present A Gut Feeling—the fifth foot-long (their 3rd for us!) from Sardinian rhythm ‘n’ beat powerhouse THE RIPPERS! Super tough mod-punk snarl and freak-beat floorstompers with galloping tom-toms on “Pain” recall Billy Childish‘s Native American worship channeling Buddy Holly, while “No One Cares” delivers hair-splitting harp wail in the grand tradition of Slim Harpo’s finest Excello Records sides as interpreted by The UK’s sharpest degenerate 60s rockers. “Stop to Drive Me Mad” is as fresh a sound as you’re ever gonna hear from these musical luddites, and tipping the hat to The Creation is as proggy as you’ll get from our heroes primitivi.
