Fuck the Misfits, Steelpole Bathtub's Lurch Has Always Been My Halloween Fave

Posted by on Wed, Oct 31, 2012 at 1:40 PM

There are only FIVE tracks on the album Lurch, it's barely more than an EP, but there is a fuckton of godamn heavy; the overall creepy vibe is dense with violence as sane collapses into unsane. Amazing Steelpole Bathtub were only a three piece.

"Christina" is probably the most deranged track on the record. The noise bit at the end, I could never CAN'T get loud enough to this day, it's the sound of a reoccurring nightmare. Lurch eventually ends with a the band's blazing version of "Paranoid"...which, considering the creepy atmosphere rest of the record, feels like the first glint of morning sunlight after a long night in a horror movie.

This upload sounds terrible. A great and underrated band, nonetheless.
