The Fabulous St. Knicholas Cage - "Shit Surf" (Vikings on Campus)

I don't usually like retro-y type bands or artists, but there is something kind of charming about lo-fi surf punk sounds coming from landlocked Tulsa, OK. The Fabulous St. Knicholas Cage create quite a racket and their five song blazing Shit Surf EP has some charm to it. The title alone evokes images of a giant brown wave off the coast so that's cool. The songs are scuzz/psyche for sure and was apparently recorded on a reel-to-reel, which could explain the convincingly archival sound. The tune titles are also firmly tongue in cheek ("Bloody Beach Blanket"), so the band is in on the joke of it all. YEP, Fun listening...
