Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Upskirts - Demos 2005
|Four demos pulled from the Upskirts website. The two live tracks are much better sounding and better written. Judging from these tracks, this Austin band targets parties and rowdy crowds.|
Picks: Fast Track B, Long Tamales Stomp, Stink Fuzz, Underhanded
Track by Track Review
Fast Track B
"Fast Track B" is a riff rocker with reverb at a fast pace, with distortion like a rockabilly rave up. Very riffy, perhaps more like a frat rock instro than surf.
"Long Tamales Stomp" is a fast and furious intro with lots of flair. The bass pumps, the guitar flies, and the drums race. Lots and lots of energy and twango. Well recorded, this would be very cool!
A really trashy recording of a really trashy frat rocker. "Stink Fuzz" is just not memorable or very interesting, except perhaps if your drunk and 15.
"Underhanded" is a fast and rhythmic track. No melody, but lots of chunk and drive. Pretty fun.
