The Barbarellatones - Invasion of the Surf
By Marcus Pan
A bunch of the tracks here on
Invasion of the Surf Zombies! also appeared on Coldsore,
reviewed elsewhere in this issue. By this time
Im downright bored with the group, as their music is stil standard 4/4
boring surf goth with overtones of monster movies, B-cult flicks and stupid
lyrics penned by kids with absolutely no ability to be imaginative. Really,
Im just tired of it.
And why put out an album that includes tracks from your
previous release? So what if there are nineteen tracks on this album. I Had
Sex With a C.H.U.D., Jaws!, Tranni Troglodyte and probably others that
barely piqued my interest and I thereafter immediately forgot were included on
Coldsore that I reviewed only weeks ago. Blah man, really.
It opens with Monster Surf Party, yet another zombie
surf dance track with about as much imagination as another Hollywood Marvel
comic movie. The Return of Mothra was about as necessary of the
Hollywood remake of Godzilla and Zombie Drag Queen is just more
Night of the Surfing Dead is just a Beach Blanket
Bingo bunch of poop with script speak and the same old guitar rock over
top. KFDQ (Surf Mix) gets interesting with well played guitars in a
do-wop solo situation, but then the lyrics just goes into fucking drag queens
and eating chicken. Its the same damn thing every time
theyll talk about miniskirts, screwing monsters, etc. maybe if
someone finally got around to giving them all blowjobs they can quit obsessing
and move onto something worth penning. I drank so much beer I gotta take
a piss is lyrical and funny only when youve discovered beer at 13
As much as I enjoy the sillyness occasionally of surf-goth,
gothabilly and the like, at least try to fucking interest me. At this point
Im bored and every time I listen to this I can feel mature brain cells
regress and my nuts start to undrop. Prepubescent fun is ok, but not after 35
songs worth. Grow the fuck up already, really, and come up with a new
guitar chord and a new lick or two. Then maybe I might stop ranting at you.
