The Slurps, from La Costa, play a rather odd mix between punk-rock and acid-rock, complete with blazing guitar leads and machine-gun rhythms. And after digesting all four songs on this EP, including the cheeky "You're So Weird," one can't help but think of the Fugs.
I'm vaguely on board with the "acid-rock" quotient, particularly on the Nuggets-addled persuasion of "Bird Get Out of the Way," which nearly busts into full blown punk chaos once the chorus hits. The remaining numbers, including the enticing "Monkey Town," suggest everyone from Let's Active to Pure Joy, and even the Troggs on the concluding "Bisquit Boy." If the Slurps move you in any way, shape or form, you should really investigate the even more accomplished Drip Tank via the first paragraph links.
