Low Culture / Needles Pins- Split 7”. Low Culture play frantic, melodic Garage Punk and feature members of Shang-A-Lang and the Marked Men. Musically they sound pretty much exactly like a cross between those two bands, with the Shang-A-Lang’s distinct songwriting style mashed together with the Marked Men’s tighter, foreceful delivery. Their two songs on this split 7” are the results of the band’s first trip into a “pro” recording studio, sounding cleaner but no less effective than their phenomenal last album. On the flip Vancouvers Needles//Pins churn out a fiery mix of Garage Rock attitude with Power Pop hooks. You can put them on right after you're through listening to Seve Adamyk Band or Mother's children and they’d fit right in nicely. Vocally I'm actually reminded a bit of John Reis from Rocket From The Crypt. Like John Reis their lead singer is a little gravely and a bit nasally and manages to carry remarkable melodies through each song that’s packed with a plethora of catchy Pop hooks.
