Artist: MORDECAI
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
Latest on Bryan Ramirez (Universal Indians, Ex-Cocaine, etc) Montana-based Killertree label. Silkscreened edition of 300. "Mordecai is a band made of vintage parts hammered together in a dilapidated garage by youthful mad scientists. Its a familiar sound if you know the Stooges, or if you know Poison 13s Tim Kerr and his numerous Texas garage rock reincarnations: grungy, almost falling apart, full of cool sneering vocals. Dont mistake Mordecai for indie hipster. This is real underground. Its how you feel when you thought life was all about the Stones and then you heard the Cramps—that kind of shiver up the spine. The Butte bands new album from local Killer Tree Records boasts nine songs with simple names like "Light," "Iodine," and "Horse" plus the occasional two-letter title, as in "Blow Happy." Its the kind of thing you can do the twist to, but more sinsister. Brothers Holt and Elijah Bodish dont hold back from messiness. Especially on "Seatbelt," where the screech of fingers across frets and cacaphonous solos make it a hungry, honest collection best heard on vinyl since it was recorded in an 80-year-old YMCA in Butte."

Title: College Rock
Format: LP
Label: Richie
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"College Rock is the rabidly anticipated new full-length from MORDECAI, the most charismatically tuneful knuckle-draggers in Missoula; quite possibly in all of Montana. The album cruises and plods across twelve tunes that recall the rougher trades coming out of the UK, the early squall of Clevelands proto-punk merchants and the reckless abandon of Will Shatter and crew. This rock trio lacks pretense; their power comes from the electric joy of plugging in and turning up. Geographic isolation works in their favor, as guys of Mordecais talent and vision would surely have been chewed up and spit out long ago by a more populous metropolis. Instead, College Rock proves that at least a few residents of Silver Bow County can teach a lesson in urban detachment. For fans of Rocket From the Tombs, The Fall, Cheater Slicks, broken strings, late-night noise, etc." -Richie.

Title: Abstract Recipe
Format: LP
Label: Richie/Testostertunes
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Abstract Recipe is the fourth full-length (the third issued by Richie Records/TestosterTunes) from Mordecai of the great upper plains. Is it punk? Or garage? Post-punk? Indie rock? Blech -- its a no-frills rock album that oughta perk up the ears of those interested in things like thwarted freedom, advanced mathematics, The Blue Mask, bum notes, and staring at the wall. Though the band grows increasingly competent and confident with each release and these precocious mofos possess a flippant world-weariness typically reserved for no-accounts and has-beens at the beginning of their third marriage. Call to mind the moment when one recognizes life for what it is: a low-key drag, but one interesting enough to wake up for each morning. Mordecai huddled up in Montana with an electric guitar, some drums and a bass and they put that moment on a record and this is it." - Richie.

Artist: MORDECAI
Title: Waste
Format: 7"
Label: Wantage USA
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Absolute cacophony from fucking Butte, Montana of all places. The definition of a noise band, not some hipster flagrinos playing with laptops or pretentious concept artistes calling themselves noise. This is an actual guitar/bass/drum band making fucking noise. Its as if theyre learning how to play their instruments while you listen. And theyve apparently still got a ways to go. Ridiculous really, but give me this as a concept over any of that art-school crap. And I shouldnt really say this is a thought out concept, it just seems to be some young kids fucking up. Is this an enjoyable listen? Barely. Viscerally. Its so disjointed you cant even tell whats happening most of the time, vocals sound like theyre being relayed through a walkie talkie, its like a free-rock project gone to hell." -RK (Terminal Boredom). First pressing of 220 copies packaged in silkscreened jackets.
