Kitcar - Move Me
Good grief. I've been doing this for awhile now, and luckily I haven't come across any of those 'we made this in our garage and it sounds as bad as it would with better production because we're just a bunch of nitwits with instruments trying to do something we're not cut out for' demos those of our ilk dread. Until now. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Kitcar. A garage band from Minnesota who plays what I can only accurately describe, in the name of justice true and just, as "crap-rock".
What is crap-rock? Well it's alot of noise covering up the member's lackluster talents, for one. The guitars are all fuzzy in a sort of Sleater-Kinney tonality but there's rarely a decent riff or hook to be found. The drumming is just about on par, and I suppose it's the best part because whoever they've got beating the skins is average (at best). Whoever is doing the singing, well, I've got to wonder if they'd heard the results and if the torture my ears are experiencing translates to those doing the torturing.
I have nothing good to say for Move Me, an album that I now wish I didn't know existed. There's little hope for these guys as far as I can tell. Maybe their friends think they're great because they have a name and a basement to play in and 'songs' on a CD, but it don't take much to do that these days. Kitcar are ample proof of that. Horrible, horrible, horrible. So bad that you should check it out, just to make me feel a little less alone with the confounding and burning question at hand; who the hell told these guys they were any good?
Better luck next time.
(Note: the album image is NOT the image found on the cover of Move Me. But it certainly would work better than the limbless skeleton with a motor attached to it's spine the band decided to go with. Much better, and I'm glad I thought of it.

Hahah. I don't try to, but I cannot deny Hunter's influence on my thoughts and writings. And that bad...yeah...this review barely touches on it. I'll say this for it; makes a terrific frisbee.
