Boomkat Product Review:
The primeval, motorik, psych metal thrust of Shit & Shine's 2005 zinger for Southern’s Latitudes series re-enters orbit 15 years later via their patrons at Riot Season.
Like Neu! meets Swans in a Norwegian ravine at midnight, ‘Ladybird’ goes fucking hard on the drums, buzzsaw guitar and possessed metal growl for 41 minutes of driving, heavy rock mayhem. It was originally one of thee earliest entries on the Latitudes series, part of a string of releases that spanned a bleeding global cross-section of artists such as Ariel Pink thru to Sir Richard Bishop and Circle who shared a subversive approach to their diverse machinations.
‘Ladybird’ always stood out from that crowd and likely introduced a lot of nuts to $&$’s monstrous powers, back when they were a multi-headed hydra of drummers and axemen known for immense stage shows. They’ve twisted every way since then, ripping up presumptions of their sound in the process, so it’s great to be reminded of their roots on this reissue, a rawly seething session that does not let up one inch with its marauding barrage of ogreish drums and psychedelic noise carved across the gyring 3rd eye, with stentorian shrieks and bestial growls sparingly used to lash weak hearts back into their marching line. Hellfire.
