Red Eye: Thee Exciters "Perpetual Happening"
Taking their earlier proto-punk MC5 / Stooges sound Thee Exciters have chucked in some acid tabs of psychedelia to come up with a second album, Perpetual Happening that will outshine their debut. The playing is tight throughout, with hard, bluesy licks and fuzzed-out guitars battling with distorted, spacey vocals. This is a truly thrilling 21st-century take on the most primitive and visceral sixties garage-psych but way too raw and and punked-out for it to be considered retro or a mere period piece. It’s time once again to get excited!
