The Charles Napiers - Mono Wray Or Deathdotdot
artworkThis narrowly distributed cassette captures just four tracks from the Charles Napiers, all with a nod to Link Wray as the title suggests, but most of questionable quality.
Picks: You're Gonna Miss Me, Chicken Choke, Ace Of Spades, Rumble

Track by Track Review


You're Gonna Miss Me dotdot
Garage Trash (Instrumental)

The wrong chords, what sounds like outta tune guitars, and murky sound leave flat this version of the Thirteenth Floor Elevators' signature tune. Big thunder, and interesting ideas, just poorly executed.

Chicken Choke dotdot
Garage Trash (Instrumental)

Sub chicken bop riff rock, energetic and fun, but not particularly memorable.

Ace Of Spades dotdot
Garage Trash (Instrumental)

Link Wray and his Raymen's "Ace Of Spades" is low browed with fuzz and murky sound. Not particularly interesting.

Rumble dotdotdot
Garage Trash (Instrumental)

Ultra trashy, big and sustained, dissonant and irritating, thick and murky, with squealing feedback. Hey, it's "Rumble," what more do you need.
