Fire Retarded- Scroggz Manor LP. Debut full length from Bobby Hussy of the Hussy’s new band Fire Retarded. Fire Retarded’s sound mixes a thick blend of guitars wailing southern rock with the Hussy’s garage rock grit and sounds lean and mean like it was recorded in a hot sweaty fuzz box. "Locks & Looks" opens the record flat out flyin. If they were looking to grab your attention right away, that track totally does it. It's toiling away in a rumbly, layered Motorhead distortion with pauses between their chorus of hillbilly blues metal with plenty of thick guitars from Bobby and Tyler filling the sonic space. Reverb feedback swirls into the vocals that really helps give the track momentum, a trick they come back to a few times on the record and it works every time. By the fourth song you realize it's all about the guitars on ‘Scroggz Manor’ and they do it well. Not that the rest of the band isn't doing their part to support their sound, but the dual guitars of Bobby and Tyler are what really make the band; and they definatley got some licks. Their underlying metal sound comes on strong on "Brain Burger" with chuggin guitars and “High Horse” sounds like Nine Pound Hammer on speed in all it’s southern fried, amped-up glory. Pretty fun record that I actually gave a second spin when it was over the first time. Cover artwork by CM Ruiz. THESE ARE ON THE LIMITED RED WAX!
