Two ex-Gluecefiers on bass and lead guitar team with a vocalist-guitarist-organist and drummer from the Tip Tops to cook up a monstrous slab of rock and roll. There’s a wicked groove at the bottom of this and Sindre Matre is a singer with more than a passing resemblance to Roky Erickson (a conclusion I swear I reached before laying eyes on Dave Champion’s erudite liners). “Tough Night” is a song so hard it wears a kevlar jacket, yet doesn’t rely on brute force or flat-out pace to make its point. “Parasite Paradise” is just as sharp and you can lay the credit on Rolf Uggen’s stinging lead guitar playing.
