Special People - "Plant" (self-released)

When guitars get rude...Special People's Plant is a grungey & grimey listen. Reminds me of what I thought "Seattle" sounded like before I actually heard bands from that particular part of the world. Special People are not from the Northwest (Baltimore, MD in this case), but DAMMIT I kinda wish they were...no, I don't...This cassette is hitting me at the right time. I want to hear fuzz boxes again. Tracks like "Fade into Mind," "Crucial Decision," and the six-minute closer "Truth Decay" have hints of the psychedelic amidst all the punk energy. Really a damn fine guitar band album. Cool. Grab one of these limited tapes before they become extinct!
