The group does just that with this 7-inch release, recorded back in the spring at Bell Labs in Norman, mastered by Garrett Haines at Pittsburghs Treelady Studios and distributed in old-school fashion by Seattles Modern Peasant Records. Wunderkind and Dogs and Guns are the two tracks, each a piston-pumping blast of up-tempo, hooky guitar rock fit to soundtrack any formal protest you may be planning.
Guitarist Robert Scafe pointed that out recently when he said Dogs & Guns was appropriate for the violence associated with the countrys rash of Occupy protests. The lyric Do the math, girl / Youre getting the shaft / Thats a natural fact! succeeds to combine this notion with a sexual innuendo, which is a major victory for rock n roll, as far as Im concerned.
In everything they do aesthetic, lyrics, garish performances the guys behind Zombie vs. Shark challenge conventional lifestyles without wandering off into sonically dissuasive territory. May they forever rock. Matt Carney
