Listen :: The Cavemen's 'Frantic Earth' is a frantic 13 track punk excursion
Words: Linn Branson
You want something loud, raw and frantic with a crescendo of decibels and urgency? Then look no further than The Cavemen's new full-length 'Frantic Earth'.
It's not surprising perhaps that these New Zealanders have found favour beyond their Auckland home. After we featured 'Janey' recently, we were ready for more. Out today (April 6) through Slovenly Recordings, the 13 tracks are a rampaging onslaught of bit-size nuggets of ballsy punk. Tune in to the full LP below.
And this third album release is, aptly, as they themselves describe it: "pure, primitive motherfuckin’ GARAGE PUNK like you lust after every night when you’re licking your sexiest leather record jackets, or ‘77 punk steeped in a moldy stack of bootleg Motörhead outtake LPs. The ‘Men have gone batshit crazy, and they’re in full-on attack mode here with 13 tracks of panty dropping chaos guaranteed to land you in jail faster than you can crack one off in a grindhouse showing an “Ilsa” film. Rock’n’roll is here to stay, and it’ll always be for the crazy kids… like it or lump it!"
Currently on tour in the US, Londoners can catch The Cavemen live on May 11 when they play The Shacklewell Arms.
