Turntablist Kid Koalas newest project, Slew, is loud and rowdy and ready to screamborn on a mountain, raised in a cave, as the old biker slogan goes. As Slew, Koala splashes deep into 70s scuzz-rockthose old LPs with Frazetta art, positively venereal guitar solos and never enough shirts to go around in the band photoswith live accompaniment from Wolfmothers ex-rhythm section. Its Parliament plus Deltrondrooling psych and snap-precise drums plus Koalas six turntables making pits and scratches over the whole thing. Detroit gets the Slew DJ set while LA gets the full band, but if its anything like the album, thatll still be plenty.
