Recordings

In contrast to the band's usual frantic syncopations, here it gets behind a driving, punky rhythm with big-muff guitar dynamics sharp enough to rival Kurt Cobain's. This song sets the band's catchiest tune to a eulogy for a misunderstood girl who "lived in a different dimension." It's easy to hear both this song and the album's dark coda, "Twenty Seven"--with printed lyrics "suppressed by artist"--as final, tortured goodbyes to Venell.

These guys know about different dimensions. They've occupied their own space on the local scene for ages, and now they almost willfully stand apart from the happenings on Mill Avenue. If Full Wave Rectifier doesn't qualify as a major sonic breakthrough, it is the sound of a band that won't go down without raising a ruckus.

--Gilbert Garcia
