CHAINSAW HOOKERS
First Blood EP

 

If someone could take Kurt Russell’s car from the movie “Death Race” and customize it to run on mescaline and blood at 1,000 miles per hour, it would sound exactly like The Chainsaw Hookers.

 

A bunch of urbane young gentlemen who call Perth, Western Australia home, but just stepped off the set of the nearest slasher-splatter film, the Hookers write wildly catchy, hook laden tunes like ‘Ride The Venom’, ‘Nazi Werewolf’ and ‘Death Curse’, which burrow in through your ears and are probably chowing down on your brains right now.

 

‘Ride The Venom’ and lead single ‘Christine’ especially sound like a turbocharged and punky Nashville Pussy on a “Deliverance” style midnight canoe trip – all redneck, tobacco chewing, greasy overalls and irresistible attitude.

 

‘Black Christmas’ is another winner, and is sure to provide a healthily mood-adjuster when the madness of the Santa season hits us all too soon.

 

It’s a gloriously surly racket full of shredding guitars, instruments getting the shit kicked out of them and melodies that pace in their cage until someone lets the gate open and they pounce right out atcha.

 

That’s enough blood curdlingly crazed metaphors for one review – but it’s not enough Chainsaw Hookers… I want more!
