ABORTED TORTOISE - An Beach LP
ABORTED TORTOISE’s debut album, An Beach, is just about everything you’d
hope for from a Western Australian punk record: 15 tracks, half-hour run time,
lots of sun-struck goon-flecked thrashing and a salty scintilla of uncynical
surf rock. ... With the lo-fi immediacy of The Sonics, the faux-dumbass
sensibilities of the Ramones and the sly musical inventiveness of Dead
Kennedys, Aborted Tortoise definitely recall a lot of crucial punk touchstones.
Meanwhile I’m also reminded of Melbourne brat-boys Ausmuteants, and more
specifically, ‘90s Perth band The Feends - bonkers treble-heavy riffing with
post-Ventures noodling and snotty sandgroper vocals. Plus, tongues balanced
delicately in cheeks.... Aborted Tortoise might make most sense in the live
setting: the visceral impact of a band going ballistic is most logically
received there-and-then, with the sweat beads landing in your eyeballs. But
like that recent winning album from Boat Show, An Beach does a stellar job of
bottling the mayhem. Take it home, uncork it, let it breathe and then scull it
like the filthy little demon you are.
