Maximum R&R on
The Astroglides' "Fondling With..."
Astroglides - Fondling With the... CD Geez, Louise. Another one straight
outta left field-actually Israel, which explains the lyric sheet that I've
been reading sideways, backwards, and diagonally. The Astroglides are
deep-gruntin' high-ridin' weirdos whose rightful identity and motivations
remain cloaked in mystery. First they're trundling through some kinda
manic speed-metal minute-long dealie that flies straight over my head,
then they bust into a low-balling surf instrumental, then knuckle-dragging
frat rock, then back toward hyperactive noise. Call 'em what you will, I'm
intrigued-particularly by what have gotta be some extra-extra-daring
lyrics given where they're from ("Be Meine Hitler"). If I didn't know
(and I do), I'd swear MRR's Dr. Dante was involved: it's got his
thumbprints all over it.
