What a nice surprise! The two Oliviers. A record put out by Olivier Crapoulet featuring a new band by Olivier Gasoil (HATEPINKS, IRRITONES, etc.). Two fine-twisted gentlemen and two of my favorite Urinepeeins. LA FLINGUE starts out like POW! with feedback and French obscenities (I think?). It’s the usual amphetamine, hate-filled punk rock with tight melodies you’d expect from this crew of degenerates. Excellent. I’m not familiar with Brazil’s ORNITORRINCOS but they start out with a GERMS sample? They play some really tight, melodic, SoCal inspired punk. There’s some hints of Oi! in there and they deliberately (I think) steal some famous guitar riffs for their songs. Good stuff.
