PUPPETMASTAZ
Creature Shock Radio

[Louisville Records, www.louisville-records.de]

Who are the Puppetmastaz? What are they doing trying to rule the world? Wild puppets, hot chicks and laughs coming out of their proverbial asses at a million miles an hour is what this German faux outfit is all about. Made up of more than a dozen of wickedly, realistically gruesome looking puppets [you heard that right!] that rap, dance and bad-mouth everything in sight. There's their leader Mr. Maloke - a hat and fur coat-wearing piece of turd that spews out obscenities and sharp wit. His partners in crime - all deviants - Panic The Pig [who enjoys marking his territory], Snuggles The Bunny [hyper-active, nylon stocking wearing freak], The Wizard [who loves cheap tricks], Pit [a happy Romanian kid] and countless others. What they do best apparently are live shows. These are spectacular, large-scale feasts. They've played hundreds of times last year alone. Hip-hop, rap and blasting deep bass, break-beat assaults are all over this mother of an album. I mean, the beats are good and these puppets can really rap, even if their raps are non-sensical and silly at the same time [but that's the point]. Comedy wrapped up in absurdity that addresses the more mundane problems of life - switching record labels, pains of success, spittin' and chewin' gum at the same time. In the end, as the album winds down, my disappointment remains with the lack of visuals. These would've enhanced this whole freak show to a point where I would've been down on the floor in pain from all the laughter.
