This 7″ single comes with St. Catherines music ‘zine Noise, and features four songs by four bands. The best of these, “Montezuma’s Revenge,” comes from Welland, Ontario’s Loomer – it’s two- chord, Sonic Youthy skronk with much yelling and grinding, space-rock breaks. Lo-rider bicycle enthusiasts Mystery Machine’s contribution, “3 Fisted,” was previously only available on a UK promotional EP: it’s a raw-er version of the driving wall-o-guitar and raspy (dare we say Early Grunge?) vocals that make up last year’s 10 Speed full-length (on Nettwerk). Girl-rock quartet Plumtree bring their blend of hooky harmonies and shimmery guitar into the mix with “Fatherhood.” Thanatopop’s tune, “Friend Surplus,” is a reworked version from the one which appears on their indie cassette, March of the Turbine Steeds – it takes you from thumping lo- fi pop into a sort of noisy math-rock breakdown, and it’s one of the worst/ best recordings I’ve heard lately, all bzzzzzz/chunka chunka. This is completely faithful to the Sound Of The Basement – which is what it’s all about, right?
