Theyre as handy with a straight razor as they are with garage punk. This duo of real-life barbers, the Sweeney Todd of Punk -- Jason Cutthroat (vocals, guitar) and Donny Paycheck (drums) - formed the band in February of this year and by March they had already recorded their album with long time Paycheck/Zeke collaborator, and producer legend Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, The Sonics, Soundgarden). Donny Paycheck enthuses ”Working with Jack on the record was smooth and easy. He really knows how to bring sounds to life.” Since the Brothers share the same profession (a grizzly one in days of yore) and a passion for bands like The Gun Club, The Cramps, Eagles of Death Metal, The Hives, it was effortless for the duo to write songs and come up with ideas for the band-like wearing bloodspattered white smocks for live shows. Paycheck has no less than eleven Zeke albums under his belt, a band with whom he toured the world playing with artists like Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, Motorhead, Superjoint Ritual, Mudhoney, Supersuckers, and D.O.A. He’s also recorded albums with the bands Toxic Holocaust and Camarosmith. Together with Camarosmith members he ran Dead Teenager Records for a number of years (Jack Endino recorded most of those releases). Now he is releasing his own music on Digital Warfare Records and says ”running the label is great! Since it’s mine we do what we want! And what we want is to get out there and do tons of touring!” Key album cuts include ”Kill 4 U” which breaks down the door with reckless riffing and a hardhitting hook that proves equally incisive and infectious. Track number four, ”Potions & Powders,” is devilishly intoxicating while the psychedelic swing of ”Snake Breath” (track eight) bares sharp teeth.
