Weird War: If You Can't Beat 'Em, Bite 'Em
If You Can't Beat 'Em, Bite 'Em
Having lost the legal battle for the name Scene Creamers to a French graffiti group, the indie-music world now has the newly named Weird War to look forward to. Supposedly a one-off collaboration between Royal Trux's Neil Michael Hagerty & Ian Svenonius (formerly of Make-Up) and Michelle Mae (who was also in Make-Up with Svenonius). I don't know, but after awhile the dirty boogies sounds of If You Can't Beat Em, Bite Em begin to feel numbingly repetitive. So I ask myself one simple question: Can I get down to it? And then I answer: Yes. Yes, I can! And sometimes that's all the listening motivation I need.
