With a new album being prepared for release in 2016, here are a couple of new non-album tracks released as a tasty sample. Both instrumental, ‘Bruce Juice’ breathes the Latino garage-rock of bands like Thee Midniters as The Kid cranks out an infectious rolling guitar riff that never drops the pace even as, in the background, all sorts of weird guitar and skronky brass sounds gather like hungry vampires. ‘El Cucuy’ is a sort of Hispanic bogeyman and the track that bears its name is a fuzzfest of garage guitar-rock that would perfectly soundtrack some midnight horror film programme. He never fails to tap into the primitive in us all with his voodoo playing, and that makes us impatient for the new record.
