When the first track is about a young boy shoplifting a Tonka Truck and ends with him snarling at his father, “you should have bought me the truck, YOU FUCK!” you know you’re in the hands of truly damaged people; a band who rock like bastards but know what they’re doing is inherently stupid. This is a magnificent – and magnificently dumb – album that revels in the most depraved and base elements of metal, doom and stoner rock but has an approach to lyrics and song titles (Motorhome, Zoltan Snake Hunter) that suggest an acquaintance with the likes of Killdozer and Ten Benson. This might not be the most edifying album of the year so far but it’s the most fun.
