The Croissants / Charles Albright: Split LP
Pleasant Screams and Sacramento Records team up to present two of Sacramento's top ear-blasters! Over the past few years, The Croissants and Charles Albright have built up nice following through constant gigging and a steady stream of quality records. This split LP continues their run.
The Croissants have had six years to rummage through the garage and what they've found is a snot-covered miscreant, a brat barricaded in a corner with takings from mom & dad's liquor cabinet and a record player blasting "Annette's Got The Hits" and early FYP records over and over. "Buzzkill", "Trashworthy", "We're In The Basement", and "Life's A Nash" gives you a hint of what Hans, Heather, and Gabba are up to.
Charles Albright, fronted by Charles Albright (imagine that!), crashes through a wall of feedback like a crazy-eyed Kool-Aid man. Ginn-rips and frantic pounding punch drunk through Tire Shredding and Short Skirt, a sly super-charged homage to mid-period Black Flag. Albright ends with a marathon assault on the chestnut Louie Louie, a version that takes psychedelic noise into the dentist scene from Marathon Man. This has to be the most relentless take on Louie Louie since Jordan Michaels unleashed his glam-punk-disco dance 12" on the world in the early 80s. Ted Angel was at the controls for both these sessions.
