4 Those Creeping Doubts
Raw, chaotic and distorted garage punk that kinda reminds me of a Rip Off band. Serious bass sculpting the structure of the songs with blasts of distorted guitar ringing out over the rumble...it’s crude and frenzied and muddy in a great way- there‘s an almost BUTTHOLE SURFERS feel to it sometimes blended with the SKUDZ. I dig this a lot, all 4 tracks rule. Great white vinyl and great cover art too.

I can't say enough good things about Dick Army. Yeah, maybe they were just a cheap, goofy Black Flag knockoff, but damnit, thay had that underdog charm and you've just gotta love that. Matt from Dick Army started this band, and to say that I was looking forward to it would be a huge understatement. It lived up to my expectations. Where Dick Army mostly played simple, sloppy three-chord punk, FOUR DEADLY QUESTIONS sound a lot more original and hard-to-pin-down. It's still fun and scrappy, to be sure, and it's not like they turned into Hawkwind or anything, but the choppy rhythms and female backups make this stand out a whole lot. Me likey.

The songs on the A-side have a raucous yet melodic punk tinge, sort of like early Jawbreaker mixed with Against Me! The first song on the B-side, "Gotta Let it Go," however, rocks with more of a bootylicious swagger, and the boy-girl interplay is evocative of Cupid Car Club. "These Creeping Doubts" round off the fun in the style of the A-side tunes. I believe this is the first release from these Brooklynites and it hints at a bright future.
