New band of the day: Wild Evel & The Trashbones

100% Neanderthal punk

Back in 2008 Wild Evel, singer of the legendary Austrian garage punk outfit The Incredible Staggers, teamed up with part of former teen-beaters The Roadrunners to form Wild Evel & The Trashbones ”“ a loud, untamed and primitive garage punk outfit that will literally take your breath away as they combine a tough and very trashy fuzz guitar sound, screaming melodies and the ”˜three-finger organ’ that all adds up to demented paint scorching sound ”“ rejoice in it!

Since then they have toured all across Europe and released several singles, however they have recently released their own debut full length ”˜Tales From The Cave’ on (obviously) vinyl only ”“ what we get are seventeen freaked out garage punk hits performed by these deranged cavemen plus guest appearances by Bernhard Gold of the Austrian mods The Jaybirds and Buddy Grabner, former saxophonist of Screaming Lord Sutch.

Wild Evel’s characteristic howling vocals, the incisive fuzz-guitar, the catchy Farfisa organ, outstanding harmonica elements and the furious drumbeats, tracks range from spooky surf-instrumentals such as ”˜Mobumbu Hop’ to raw and loud punk recordings like ”˜Let’s go right now’ or a teen-ballad ”˜Cathalina’ to 80’s garage-sounding songs like ”˜Freak Train’ The album also includes a cool and fuzzed-up cover version of The Sheape’s ”˜Black Cat’ and a cover of Art Guy’s 60’s Punk classic ”˜Where You Gonna Go?’

”˜Tales From The Cave’ has been released by Germany’s Soundflat Records
