Cuntz - Aloha


Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Noise Rock
For Fans Of: Gentlemen, Grong Grong, Feedtime, King Snake Roost, Venom P. Stinger

If ever you wanted the experience of getting blackout drunk at the pub, wandering into a back alley and promptly passing out in a pool of your own vomit in musical form - Cuntz is your band.
Perhaps you need a soundtrack fitting for your next neighborly dispute, something to accompany that thong you're planning to hurl at your neighbours forehead - try Cuntz.
Trapped in suburbia with hundreds of metres of brown grasss, chain link fences and untidy lawn furniture the only thing in sight, and in desperate need of something just as disillusioned and bored as you are to keep you company - Cuntz.
If my abstract descriptions aren't doing it for you though, Cuntz are a four piece noise rock band from Melbourne who play scuzzy music laced with dry humour and a plethora of Australian cultural references (see the piss poor rendition of the riff from Thunderstruck at the end of Punt). With vocals that range from a spoken monotone to a delirious howl (glorious accent and all) backed with scraping, atonal guitar riffs and plodding basslines Cuntz is basically what happens to post punk if you lock in the car too long without the windows cracked while you go off to gamble your life savings away at the pokies. AND if all that doesn't have you racing for the download link, there's a fucking David Liebe Hart cover on here too.
