thee Hydrogen Terrors - The Erotic Adventures

The Erotic Adventures of ….

Their first record. Short economical, and kick ass. Has a certain sinister quality to it. Like the U-Men with attention span problems and crazier stories to tell.

The lineup:

Nick Atocha: drums
Guy Benoit: vocals, sax
Dan St. Jacques: bass
Matt White: guitar

Recorded by Jon Williams (Volcano Suns) in Vermont, it is an awesome document of a an insane man growing inside the body of a small child. Its an early document of a band (Von Ryan’s Express) thats life was diverted by the free encounter of opening for the Boredoms AND the Bar-B-Q Killers. A grimy backbeat, scratchy guitars, and some cracker-jack drumming teamed up with Side-2 Funhouse horn squall.

thee Hydrogen Terrors - Terror, Diplomacy, and Public Relations

Terror, Diplomacy, and Public Relations

Their second record. More developed than the first. Great songs, production values are GO!!

The lineup:

Nick Atocha: drums
Guy Benoit: vocals, sax
Chris Cook: bass
Matt White: guitar

“Terror, Diplomacy and Public Relations” is like watching a bully knock a giant down with a sweet punch. Its got screech in the guitars, bump in the bass, and snap in the drums. Its thoroughly a modern record.

The songs are wound up like a watch coil, and explode on impact. Topics addressed include one hit 1970 wonders Hackamore Brick, airline crashes in the Florida swamps, and gay bars. For some reason its got odd tape collages. This is the record to start with.

Song: Mexico
