The Dukes of Hemi Orange

CD Cover Four Barrel

Review by Darren Kerr

-- Hemi. Engine. Torque. Four Barrel.

-- gallumphing guitar driven beat on title track

-- like Phil Anselmi fronting the Smalls

-- more hooks in three songs than some lesser arrghwelders manage in their entire careers

These were my point-form notes that I jotted down while listening to Four Barrel's EP before cranking the mother up and sending the signal needle into the red while I vacuumed madly, at times even catching air. The guitars could stun a sasquatch and the beat is a bouncing, lurching bag o' tricks. Killer introduction to this great Sidney band. Their hopefully forthcoming full-length will put hair on your chest.
