Spin it: Abertooth Lincoln

Live in This You Fucking Roaches

By W.C. Ruffnel

Live in this you Fuckin' Roaches

With a name like Abertooth Lincoln, it should come as no surprise that this musical group tackles political issues hyperbolically with an enormous fang piercing through a stove-pipe hat. Lyrical themes and a perceivably ironic name aside – this band is a delicious slice of progressive punk with no clearly defined genre boundaries. Synthesizer leads bleep in over hyperactive drum blast beats, copious bass riffage and a barrage of virtuosic guitar. The “gang vocal” is aptly used; there’s screaming, Yoko-worthy moans drenched in deranged effects, and what sounds like neon-colored sweat oozing from whatever speaker you choose to abuse for this thick-as-molasses EP. If you enjoy psychedelic-styled prog rock albums force-fed into the speed-king meat grinder, find this album and gorge your soul. For fans of Les Savy Fav’s ethos with Mars Volta’s talent challenging the attention span of the Ramones, these are five tracks of band in control of their fully realized fury.
