John the killer is the first track from the bands record EL MONSTRUO. It does what it says on the tin. A killer track on a monster of a record.
Having seen these guys live numerous times and shared the stage with them I knew I would be treated to a full-on spaghetti surf psych trip. And I wasn’t disappointed.
I became thrown into a world of confusion, not in a bad way let me say. I was bouncing between a Tarantino Esque western bar room brawl, corralled in a psych fuelled buckaroo stampede or on a police chase between San Diego and El Paso.
All of which caused me to hold tight onto my seat as I travelled through a relentless track of punk cinematic dreams. The overwhelming surfy guitars haven’t left these lads but they are certainly more hidden as if been hunted by a Mexican cartel!!
I wasn’t given time to breathe which is right up my street. When vocalist Joe Sartini dropped spitting out lines I was met with rolling drums angular guitars and backing vocals to stop any element of a distraction. There is no holding back, which does reflect the live stage performances. Which with hopefully find a way to a stage soon.
