Cussin’Upset The Rhythm
UTR 067 EP
***SPRAY PAINT are a no wave punk outfit from Austin, Texas made up of CHRIS STEPHENSON (drums/vocals), CORY PLUMP (guitar/vocals) and GEORGE DISHNER (guitar/vocals). Spray Paint's buzz-sawing guitars run headlong through labyrinthine tunnels of reverb, chased down by some wildly brain-bashing drums. All three members of Spray Paint sing, too. "Cussin'" plays out with some derailed guitars, working up a tone of paranoia amid the thumping rhythms. "Three Thumbs Up" is a disorientating number with the band's trio of vocals calling out the lyrics like a repetitive mantra. "Ask My Old Roomate, Man" makes room for path-leaping sprees of guitar, offset with stormy blasts of distortion.
