The Notorious Hi-Fi Killers – 7” Vinyl
Label: Noisestar Records
Release Date: February 5, 2007
A London band specializing in psychedelic layers of fuzz, sludge, and filth. Sounds about right.
How Is It?
Well, I’ll tell you one thing: this ain’t hi-fi. The band distorts everything so much that it’s hard to tell what the emphasis of each song should be. Still, the reformed metal riff on “A Prayer For The Modern Man” cuts through the static-drenched vocals without difficulty. And the chugging, heavy riff on “Horny & Broke” recalls Mouth of the Architect, but where screams would follow, there is only wasted noise. As a limited pressing of heavy vinyl, these four songs could be a cool collectors novelty. Oh, you only collect locks of hair? Don’t bother with this.
