The Obligatory Cripples - Dinosaurs (2012)

A garage rock band that originated in Warsaw, Poland but now living in London. They've got a lo-fi punk sound that conjures recollections of the Stooges. Damned near the whole cassette is fuzzed out and driven by rhythmically pounding drums; something I'll never tire of. Perhaps one of the most compelling tracks is a cover of "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" by the Ramones. It's got some lovely guitar between more excited and frenzies that reminds me of the Velvet Underground. Not to suggest their own songs aren't pretty righteous garage punk, for they're terribly catchy and brief affairs. Some of the tracks are for free, but the EP on a whole is $5 and I hear there's to a cassette release sometime. Additionally there's a couple of really lo-fi tracks for free on the Self-Hating Jew mini EP. And if you're wondering where you might've seen these guys before Comrade Ongakubaka already posted about them.
