Side B: Sudden Wave, Militant
One cannot stretch a balloon into a nail OR morph a turkey into a
television. By that logic, one can’t adequately tie a bow around Mr. Ian
Teeple’s oeuvre, be it as guitar bubbler in WARM BODIES or as the outer
realm conduit Natural Man, a guise heard here on wax for the first
time. Aided by the all-directions Flamin’ Hot Band, Natural Man’s
orchestral yet abnormal spazz recalls the most acidic and jaunty
oddities of 80s American punk and DIY, a truly outside sound that’s
positively thwacking at the gates, demanding entry. All four movements
here have the requisite legs, fins, hoofs, gills and spores needed to
cause prolonged and consistent commotion. “Sudden Wave” begins with
recognizable Detroit punk riffing, gradually evolving that tough-guy
overbite into bonfide space skronk. “Militant” drags a new wave pulse
through the gutter, wringing out a danceability that even the spikiest
of punks couldn’t resist. In this universe or your mother’s, Natural Man
is an Electrical Man and just the right man for our end times. - Mitch
