    Everything [on Dismania] has weight. And makes just about anything (other than the examples cited above) that's been calling itself Retro/Garage/Psych Rock sound, suddenly, rather tame.

    It may not seem like much, but 32 straight minutes of lyrics about rodents, dead bodies, and acid rain can get exhausting. But, however biting, the payoff is worth it with each individual song.

    Dismania makes for an altogether appropriate title for an album this interested in gathering the common ingredients of despair, anger and disaffection.

    From the first notes of their sophomore LP Dismania, the grime, depravity, desperation, and sometimes fun of [New York City] come through in screaming waves.

    The brute blast of aggression that Dismania impressively sustains to its conclusion begins at the very beginning with "Child".

    Though the sax draws you in, you'll stay for the trashy energy. [No.87 p.56]

    Raw, very raw energic Garage Punk album. I hear some speedy Sonic Youth influence (the noise) and The Psychedelic Furs (Chaotic Saxophone). Screams, noise, angry, driven, rebellious music. Post Punk fans; just jump on it! In my top 10 2012 album. Expand
