THE BARBITURATES Bring You The Dadaist Guerilla Sound Of Ireland

Daily electricity to load your batteries

13 October 2021

Band: THE BARBITURATES
Who: Take a deep breath,… “a grungy psychedelic occult postpunk
Dadaist Guerrilla D.I.Y ontology discordian skizophonic rock band from
Derry city Ireland

New album: Titled, take another deep breath,… SUPER CALLOUS FASCIST
RACIST TORIES ARE ATROCIOUS
(the best album title I heard all year long) that
will hit the streets just before Xmas, on 23rd December. A great festive present
to convert your beloved family to The Barbiturates.

All tracks will be unleashed one by one before
the longplayer’s release (bonus stuff included).

The first two singles

– YOU CAN’T SEE ME –

Doesn’t really sound like a Guerilla rant. The vibrant combination of jingle-jangle guitars
à la 60s legends The Byrds, whistle-along catchiness à la Kurt Vile, a sing-along ba-ba-ba chorus, and a sparkling guitar finale resound more like a radio hit and that’s totally fine
by me.

– CONTORT –

After the poppy decoy above it’s in-your-face time with a cry-out sledgehammer swaying forth and back with droning force for 100 seconds. A trash and clash slam with some unexpected piano clatter in the end. Bingo!


.
I wonder what comes next: a jazzy instrumental followed
by a hardcore hammer blow? Yep, I’m definitely curious.
