Review of Track 3 of XRP
Journey Through Genres
Track 3 of the unsigned sampler compilation from XRP radio comes from XRP stalwart Luis Drayton.
I’m not going to pretend I understand Luis Drayton at all. He is a slightly scary, cross dressing, sleazy, alt rocker; who also presents shows on XRP radio. Not that any of that is a problem.
He produces some of the dirtiest sounding music you’re ever likely to come across. Probably, this is the reason why he is so immensely popular with the XRP listenership. He doesn’t appear to have a Bandcamp page but here’s the track from the XRP bandcamp so can hear what I am talking about.
It opens with a deep down riff and a rumble of drums, with Luis’ voice deep and husky.
The style is straight ahead punky rock with a very solid beat. Mosh pit fodder if ever I heard it. The lyrics are a bit odd as you might expect from the title.
“Gadget Hack Wrench Suck” four perfectly ordinary English words that any child of ten would be familiar with. But put together they become as incomprehensible as Greek, and to be honest, I’m not entirely sure I want to know what the song is about.
Suffice to say, I enjoy the noise from the speakers when it is playing and that is as deep as I am willing to dig, for fear of unearthing something unpleasant.
