DA GROINS is a new band I'm doing with Matt Woods (ex-Revenge of the Psychotronic Man, currently also in PI$$ER). We recently put out 4 song 7" called '100% Groin'.
In true Da Groins spirit, I can't be bothered to write anything new about this, so I've cut 'n' paste the press release below:
A feral rock ‘n’ roll howl from the festering, spider and rat-infested garage, DA GROINS finally release their first 4 songs into the wild in the shape of this raucous 7”.
Recorded with barely functioning instruments and smashed through in one take apiece, these 4 tunes buzz and skree all over the place, with not a moment’s thought for fidelity or corporate edge-smoothing. A total no-frills production (even “production” seems a bold claim) that simply captures DA GROINS in their snotty, dribbling, fuck you, glory. As it proclaims on the back of the record, this is “sloppy aggro garage shit”, and it’s hard, nay impossible, to argue with that.
The songs though, are mag-fucking-nificent! If you can get with the no-fi, these are catchy-as-hell garage punkers with rockin’ 3 note guitar solos and an overload of nasty attitude. If your idea of “garage punk” is THE HIVES and THE WHITE STRIPES, then turn away now; this isn’t for you! This is for the realer dealers who get off on the unadorned, primal budget rock of THEE HEADCOATES, THE MUMMIES, and ARMITAGE SHANKS.
