ARCHIE BRONSON OUTFIT
Dead Funny

[Domino, www.dominorecordco.com]

I don't usually review singles, but what the hey. Archie Bronson Outfit's latest CD single "Dead Funny" is a strangely rockin' tune. Vocalist / guitarist Sam Windett sounds like he's been bitten on the toe as he rambles the lyrics and screams the chorus in agony. The rest of the band follows suit with some lovable, tough-hitting rock melody, while the rhythm section is tightly knit, like two lovers wrapped in a wool blanket. Production [courtesy of Jacquire King] is claustrophobic. If you remember Steve Albini's glory days of Rapeman and Scratch Acid, you'll get the picture. All instruments are basically mixed on par and nothing takes precedence over anything else. It's too bad the single is only two tracks long [with the radio and album edits of the same song] as some unreleased stuff would've fit in very well. As a little teaser of their new "Derdang" album, "Dead Funny" is a serious blow to the system.
