Norway - Full Moon 68 - 04/27/02
Marionettes b/w Bogus Boogie
Safe As Milk
Whoa! Rawk! From the Norwegian west coast comes a single from a bunch called Årabrot,
named after the local garbage dump place. Presenting two songs of tough, raw sounding, primal
rock. They kick and punch, with an incredible energy and heartfelt aggresion. 100 %.
The foursome call themselves Nibby Needle (guitar), Sofus K (bass, backing), Marakel (drums)
and Deadly Nightshade (guitar, keyboards), and together they pull the strings for the up-tempo
A side song "Marionettes" with perfect precision and attitude. Wire meet Pere Ubu meet Dead
Kennedys meet the Fall. A steamingly angry piece of music, a fiery two-and-a-half minute buzz
feast. "Bogus Boogie" is a bit slower but not less energetic. Swamp rock for full moons. Excellent.
