PATTIE - Good Big LP
Debut LP from this band out of Oakland now based in New York, though I'd
forgive you for thinking they’re from Minneapolis as they sound
strikingly similar to Uranium Club.
society as a whole, punk rock seems to go through eras of conservatism
and progressivism, and despite (or maybe because of?) the fact that the
right-wingers seem to be ascendant in the United States’ and Europes'
wilder culture, we seem to be experiencing a moment in the punk scene
when nothing is cooler than letting your freak flag fly.
Patti have more of a Minutemen / Suburban Lawns-type white funk swing
to them, but the deadpan vocals and Krautrock-ish way of riding simple, repetitive riffs will do any Uranium Club
fan right. The bass lines, guitar lines, and vocal patterns are
uniformly interesting, but one place Patti excel is in writing cool
Most of the
songs on Good Big have a middle section about 3/4 of the way through
where the song goes to some strange, unexpected place. The transitions
are fluid, so you find yourself thinking, “wait, is this the same song?”
until they drop back into one of the familiar parts from earlier in the
song. Having that sense of movement and development to the song takes
what would have been an interesting collection of riffs and makes them
into something more than that, a set of musical stories that unfold in
front of you.
This is top-notch egg punk, so even if you only mess with the hits like Uranium Club and Coneheads this is worth checking out.
