Mobile, Alabama scuzz-punks Gary Wrong dropped a 7" via Total Punk earlier this year, serving up some grungy stuff with plenty of tension filling the air. B-side “Streets of Iron” is a scuzzy cover of Bad Times original hellish track from their LP on Goner Records in 2001. It’s a dirty thing, with exceptional punk fuzz and disgusted vocals doing the damage.
On the A-side, “Pollen Christ” is a heated scorcher, sounding extra thick and heavy with its splitting power-punk guitars. There’s a constant, chainsaw-like buzz enveloping every shredded guitar hook, giving this song its raw qualities and gritty texture. The murky, reverberating vocals lead the way through this fouling onslaught, only helping assist in the track’s crunchy and mutilated complexion.
Gary Wrong will be at Gonerfest on September 28th, which is just one more reason I need to get up off my ass and get down to Memphis for that weekend. Now listen to “Pollen Christ” right here.
