The Rhode Island duo, who've been creating their unholy racket since 1994, have a brand-new LP coming out in about a month (Oblivion Hunter, via Load Records). The first taste of it hit the Internet a few days ago, and it seems like the guys are learning how to get their live sound onto their recordings. Today's 12 O'Clock Track, "King Candy," captures the bizarre, overblown bass tones of Brian Gibson and the ear-piercing, machine-gun drumming of Brian Chippendale (who is seriously one of the most unique and intense players to ever pick up a pair of sticks); the song structure, on the other hand, is somewhat conventional, so that the result is weird, noisy, pulverizing, and catchy all at the same time. The band comes to the Empty Bottle on Sat 9/15.
