ESTROGEN HIGHS "She Don't Bother" 7inch

On first listen Connecticut's Estrogen Highs give off a feeling of the Feelies dismantled and scattered about while some lunatic shouts out an inventory of the parts. Not a bad starting point but further spins bring out a deformed charm that they can claim all as their own.
A swampy rock-n-roll beat gets crammed into a meat grinder on "She Don't Bother" while "Friends Family LSD" takes jangle rock down to a bad trip rodeo. "Silly Questions" is a hyper kid trying to derail a train with barewires ran off an old Tyco train transformer creating a pungent fuzz and the surface noise from a Gun Club record they found laying out in the middle of the street.
