Mumble Club: WEENLIZ / DEATH OF THE DINOSAUR / GATR / BOOMEDAN
"Weenliz are a trio whose instrumentation screeches damage. Distorted Bass, Toy Sax, Metal Bed Leg, Screwdrivers, Drill, Knife, Detuned Guitar Loops, Sampler, Microphone and Theremin are all used on their first EP. And it's a right old racket. There are four 'proper' tracks interspersed with four 50 second slabs of manic white noise. "Forget Me Knottz" has a ludicrous jackhammer beat pounding beneath sheets of screech. "The Big Bouncy Bear Back Bacon Bee Bop" (what?) introduces Simon Bates' "Our Tune" theme (remember that?) played on a tinny organ, while all manner of hell breaks loose. It gradually settles down into a repeated grumbling riff. "Fur/Bramble" is the one. The dirtiest, most distorted bass you're likely to hear grinds out a riff underneath a wailing siren and scummy feedback. It's punk as fuck. "Chinese Barbie" is relatively restrained, with a slow, three-note bass rhythm and a two chord guitar break rumbling along like Link Wray on ketamine, before everything disintegrates into a mess of static, short-circuits and feedback."
