Mullet Monster Mafia, The -Inferno [COLOR VINYL; Surf Rock; Brazil] – New LP
INSTRUMENTAL SURF ROCK FROM BRAZIL!!! 2021.
Every now & again you come across a record that makes your hair stand on end. Whoaaa!!! WTF? I like a lot of music, Punk, Hard Core, No wave, Rock n Roll, Rockabilly, Whatever? I like it or I don’t. Interesting I was asking the question just weeks before “Is there such as thing as “Hard Core instrumental “ and then Monster Mullet Mafia hits my turntable. Steve Austin & Robocop were nearly killed in tragic accidents & they had to be rebuilt using bionic body parts. Surf Rock hasn’t died off, bands like Monster Mullet Mafia are just rebuilding it with Bionic parts. At the moment Otitis Media records are putting out some of the most “super human strength” guitar records that I have ever heard in my life, and “Monster Mullet Mafia” just moved to the top. Some records have all their strength on side 1, and usually a few filler/ballad tracks to stretch the vinyl. No such thing on Inferno, and while commercial music mixes the vocal right up front & the instruments are incidental, with Inferno the percussion, guitar & bass all take equal front seat. This LP is a classic power house of Surf Rock right until you hear the waves crashing on the last track. more up tempo, punching hard with a bit of Brazilian Chilli in there to keep your musical taste buds titillated. I love this record, & it takes my vote for; “The Six Million Dollar guitar” for 2021. (So Far). -- James (the Super Human Green Noiser from Down Under)
Random color vinyl. While we've got the free streaming sampler below, I just listened to both that and the vinyl, and this is clearly meant to heard on vinyl, sounds radically better washed in the warmth of analog, sparking like a stone on flint, warm and welcoming like the surf off the coast of Brazil, the digital and analog like the difference between watching a surfer on a video and riding the waves yourself. Take me away from this cold sterile pandemic and plant my feet in the soft sand warm as a glowing tube amp. Another kick and killer set from the Otitis Media label. -- winch (green noise)
