The Hyena Kill – ‘Blisters / Still Sick’ [Review]
Late one night during a week-long road trip, a former female friend and I stopped at a petrol station and bought a copy of a men’s magazine, from which she recited the following “Real Life Confessions” tale in the style of a BBC newsreader:
“Last year, I discovered that my now-ex husband was cheating on me. The day I found out, he arrived home late (as usual). When he got into bed, I cuddled up to him and told him I had a surprise planned for just that night. I turned the lights out while he tore off his boxers eagerly. I walked back to the bed and kissed him deeply while I squeezed a big load of Deep Heat lotion into my palm and rubbed it seductively into his knob.
His screams still haunt me to this day.”
I’d imagine that tone-wise, that guy’s voice sounded somewhere close to the Hyena Kill’s Steven Dobb on this pair of none-more-intense tunes, which the band’s own Facebook page files under “Proud cows on acid”. Needless to say, you could not ask the Hyena Kill to be any more proud cows on acid than they already are. Which is really saying something.
