Obnox: The Juke That Sat By The Door 12" EP

Obnox: The Juke That Sat By The Door 12″ EP

A typically blistering effort from Lamont Thomas’ incredible garage-noise-soul duo Obnox. Opener “Loud Speaker” starts with a short spoken intro talking about frequencies found on records, then “Dark Arts” batters your skull in for a few seconds with a super loud fast song that ends before you even start counting. “All Hail The Deejay” is a blurry midtempo song which repeats its title a lot, and “Sit Yo Ass Down” is more of a slower funk groove and also repeats its title extensively, and feels like the centerpiece/mission statement of the record. “Thanks For Yesterday” is a more straightforward soul cover (not sure who the original is by), and “(Do) The Clap” is a Gories-like stomp with a fuckton of distortion and a fast caveman beat. “Buzz Clique” is a brief backwards outro.
