Ich Bin Ein Esel - 7" (Swashbuckling Hobo Records)


"Ich Bin Ein Esel are Mad Macka's latest outfit (he of Onyas guitar heroics and present day Cosmic Psycho) with mates from Boondall Boys and Dangermen. Macka picks up the bass duties on this one, but also overdubs some hot solo action on the A-Side tracks. It's not as if good ol' Dr. Rock couldn't handle the guitar duties himself (he also does some soloing of his own, as does dummer Larmo - making this a guitar...platoon? I'm just trying to avoid saying army here...). It's Aussie-brand action rawk (derived from Detroit rawk), "Holy Grail" opens with the high water mark, as the soloing is the most molten (Macka and Rock on this one) with lots of wahhhhhhh. "Man Punches Shark" is fun, both for the ridiculous concept and chorus ("Fuck Shit Up!") and the Aussie-est vocal. It sounds the most punk and least rawky. Chugging even. "Hate, Fear and Conquest" is a hot metal attack. Chuggier still. If you have a taste for guitar daredevils and Motor City whomp, this is for you, chief. " - TERMINAL BOREDOM (RK)

"This thing kills. They are ICH BIN EIN ESEL. Featuring Mad Macka / Larmos Cusack / Dr Rock.  Guitar solos by all." 

A. Holy Grail / Big Picture Man   B. Man Punches Shark / Hate Fear & Conquest
