Supersuckers/Zeke - split 7"
If you're Australian and still lamenting the cancellation of Zeke's planned 2006 tour, maybe this split single will provide solace. "Chinatown" is 1min39sec of what you could term fairly typical Zeke rock action i.e. no need for niceties,now get the fuck out of my way. The Supersuckers song will pummel your eardrums into next week and probably takes the points in a split decision. A near run thing but when it's this close, who cares. Flip from one to the other. It's all good.
What a scoop for Bootleg Booze, two of my all time faves on one 7", neat-o! "Cato Negro" is vintage Supersuckers, a hardrockin' powerhouse of a song. Catchy, fast, loud, tight...y'know, it's Eddie and the boys, man! "Chinatown" (not a Thin Lizzy cover) is Zeke showing off their Motörhead influences; raw, ballsy, pissed off angry cockpunk'n'roll with a notnotch production to boot. This split is a no-brainer, so get it now, motherfuckers! According to Bootleg Booze it's limited to 700 black, 200 yellow, 100 Vinyl Club ONLY black-yellow splatter.
