|It's hard to imagine why they are called Surf Rats, but then again, they do a couple of instros, and if you close your eyes and think of England, you may see the ocean.|
Picks: Crazed, Elvis Legg
Track by Track Review
"Crazed" is a dark industrial thing with machine beats and a minimal melody line. Pretty non-melodic, very mechanical, and yet beach like, if you subscribe to the bleak post-human robot theory of beach combing.
I don't know if this is the reference for the title, but there's an updated version of the dissonance that Pink Floyd created in "Corporal Clegg" that "Elvis Legg" embraces. No, there's no melody or rhythm similarities, just a feeling. Anyway, this is harsh in an emotional sense, or perhaps cold and barren.
