Reptoids
Park A Tiger
RRRecords
www.reptoids.net


In the beginning the punk was void and without form. And Hilly said, "Let there be CBGB's. " This is music that isn't preoccupied with the punk rock sorting hat. Reptoids have more passion and direction than technical ability, which is precisely why punks created this whole pastime in the first place - to rail against Guitar Institute Of Technology gits. All you have to do is have a good musical or lyrical idea (which they've got both) and bring it to life. That's not to say that they aren't decent musicians, they just avoid showboating and appear on the same page.

Singer Kay Oh tries to be neither too cutesie nor unearthly evil but irresistibly strong and tough. The sonic thrills are an amalgam of minor-note garage rock and artsy darkness perpetrated by Melissa's avalanche guitar licks and like-minded bass from Ari Joffee. "F.U." demonstrates perfectly how they take each part and pull the threads together into something vivid knitted by Meg's skilled drumsticks. The backup vocals blend so well that it sounds like studio technique. I parked this tiger, and after a dozen listens, none of the excitement has leaked out. And they play with Evil Beaver? But of course.

-Ewan Wadharmi
