Atlanta’s SUBSONICS are a gutter-glam, minimal rock’n’roll
trio. This is their 8th album and it’s called “Flesh Colored Paint.”
Like all their previous works, this is a distilled hodgepodge of decades
of popular culture and classic literature culminating in a collection
of short and groovy shambolar: Chuck Berry, Albert Camus, AM radio rock
jocks, Bo Diddley, Golden Age TV, surrealism, Mad Magazine, kung-fu
flicks, Herman Melville, Little Richard, self-negating philosophy, David
Johansen, The Bible, Dee Dee Ramone, Lee Van Cleef, Cornell Woolrich,
advertising jingles, Dada, Carole King, Bugs Bunny, and Casablanca; the
poem, not the film. This is a gorgeous mess of a record, and it’s cool.
REAL COOL, KILLER. We hope you’ll find something within to make you
think, or at the very least, dance, if it’s too deep.
