Paint Fumes drew first blood together in the year 2011, sharing a mutual love of garage scuzz and brain-chain reaction, and the connection was immediate and fierce.

Like the lovechild of Link Wray and Cheetah Chrome, raised by Lemmy on the streets of Venus, they sweated out the fever every night in ecstatic style. By the time Slovenly Recs got around to spitting out a couple classic 45s and their debut platter Uck Life, most true heads and even those way out of the know alike had gotten the message.

The reconstituted, undiluted, all-original moldy trinity is back and it's the Egyptian rats' revenge!

Out front is Elijah Von Cramon, master of the sharp-toothed groove and the lyrical lather, there's nary a dry eye or crotch in the house when he lets loose on the microphone.They don't have to come back to the crossroads: they live here, honey. Their night beats your month. We need them now more than ever, so let us each relax, take a deep huff, and get bent to where we once were wrong."Hard, in-your-face rock n' roll.
