Eddy Current Suppression Ring style!
With their tough-as-nails garage rock attack, Ross De Chene Hurricanes proudly celebrate the tradition of garage punk.
You can hear the attitude in the Black Lips-ish ‘Sun Don’t Set When You’re Cool’ – what’s youth for if you can’t muscle through the toughest situation with a bulletproof sneer and a casual wink? Then there’s the specious culinary analysis of ‘TV Dinner’, all post-Ramones simplicity and domestic banality; the Digger and The Pussycats-like introverted pop psychology of ‘Personality Disorder’; and the King Khan-inspired career counselling of ‘In A Rut’.
If you want to sit back on the couch and gaze into the distance thinking fondly of Sic Kidz’s ‘LSD’, then cop a listen to ‘I’ve Been Thinking’ and get your life in some sort of chaotic mess. Then comes ‘ADHD’, nominating a psychological condition to explain everything stupid you’ve done in your life, just in time for the Weezering musing of ‘Getting Old’ to remind you that bigger shit’s going to happen sometime soon. Maybe that’s what the LA-punk-spiked ‘Everything’ is about; a white flag in the face of unavoidable psychological and vocational complexities.
But then comes the band’s eponymously titled track, a Ted-Nugent-in-a-garage slice of rock’n’roll comfort that makes you realise garage rock is and always will be where it’s at.
