Lady Banana – Wall of Cheese CS

lady banana wall of cheese cs frantic city records 2015

The folks at Frantic City Records have been on a tear this far through 2015. Wall of Cheese from LADY BANANA, a trio based in Göteborg, Sweden, is their third most-recent release, delivering a blend of bluesy garage and punk in a blistering 20-minute tantrum.

As promised, fans of Cheater Slicks and Oblivians will not be let down by this bad ass little tape. Wall of Cheese comes with eleven tracks that average out to about 2-minutes a piece, combining gritty blues and aggressive punk into an invigorating mixture that will give you no other choice but to stomp along to the disheveled rhythm. Searing layers of fuzz call the shots, driving you straight into the ground by pounding away relentlessly with each buzzing punk monstrosity and they couldn’t care less about any damage they cause en route. They even toss in a cover of the Velvet Underground classic “Run Run Run,” complete with a bruising, tom-heavy beat that’s buried under a filthy beam of nasty guitar racket. It’s followed by standout track “A Place to Go,” wherein you can feel the relentless, electrifying pummel that drives this entire cassette. “I’m Not You” follows along in similarly destructive fashion, unfolding as a sub-2 minute banger that grounds you straight into dust. “The Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill” wraps up the tape with a blistering beam of blown-out guitar, complete with frontman Pontus Westman’s raspy, pent-up shouting.
