Nohopekids-s/t EP (2011)

So this whole Olympia punk thing is starting to wear a bit thin. All these teen punks in heat actin' like it's 1995 all over again with their lifestyle politics and horrible B.O....boy howdy, dear readers, it's enough to make this senior citizen wanna crack an Old Style, load up on Klonopin, and zonk himself to death on yonder sofa.

Bring on Nohopekids, Budapest's biggest, baddest scuzzfuckers. Despite being recorded closer to the Kremlin than Ford Motor Works, this cat has the mid-60s garage thing down pat. Relentlessly monotone sheetmetal drumming! Almost-melodic guitars! Hollered, indecipherable caterwauling! Yes!
The highlight is "The Lonely Surfer pt. 2" where Mr. Nohope cuts the sonic squall for some truly pretty guitar work.
If your week has been as freaked out as mine, you'll dig this as you sink deeper into your Thursday night spiral of booze 'n' pills.

Don't be told about what you want.... Check out dude's bandcamp page for his other releases. I'd totally buy the physical product if I had a clue as to how to do so.
