Direct from Smog City, USA, Cruising For Tacos During the Apocalypse – Part I is a cataclysmic cannonball into a half-drunk horizon of dusty bottles and the pale urban jaundice of our time. It pulls together a brief but elegant universe, built from fast-food wrappers, highway hermeneutics and busted beer bottles, and filled with the folks that populate the vibrant world beyond the simulated technicolor feedback-loop.
A high-test street marinade of garage-folk, fuzz-country, sewer-blues and red-eyed rock and roll, this new record is served up proper with some grilled pineapple and the collected ground-scores from a bizarre, paisley-noir dystopian nightmare. It follows the band’s five critically acclaimed previous studio efforts, the 2019 fuzz-country burner, Discount Liquors, 2016’s Hot Chicken (available on vinyl from Moped Music), 2014’s Stars & Stripes, 2013’s Lowlife Dreams EP, and 2012’s raucous debut, The Whiskey & Oatmeal EP.
A slab of science for the current times and throwback to the faded days of jam-econo gone by – Cruising For Tacos will help you ward off the end of days with a with a margarita and a bellyflop into a pool-full of piranhas. Not from concentrate and not for the faint of heart.
Smog City, Smog City. A little grilled pineapple goes a long way in this town. Just hold on for Part II.
