Three 7" Records from Hozac Records

TORTURED TONGUES  "Let Me Down" b/w "Feed the Flys" + "To Death"

TORTURED TONGUES
"Let Me Down" b/w "Feed the Flys" + "To Death" (HoZac)

If it were possible for Tortured Tongues to reach a level where they cared less about what anybody thought of their music, then I'm sure they would try to get there in a hurry. I'm showing my age here (eighty-five next week) but The Tongues remind me of the ultimate bad time band, Flipper and their brand of bummer rock. There's a similar unsettling effect with whatever is going on here. You've got to turn up the Loud and turn up the Angry if you're going to listen this record, and really bad ditchweed would only enhance the experience—Muggsy McMurphy

GENTLEMAN JESSE & HIS MEN  " You’ve Got the Wrong Man" b/w "Stuborn Ghost"

GENTLEMAN JESSE & HIS MEN
" You’ve Got the Wrong Man" b/w "Stuborn Ghost" (HoZac)

Georgian and Organ Donor (and Gentlman) Jesse Smith digs poppy, jangly 60s pop music. I know this because of the two songs on this record. The one hundred and fifty-five pound, six foot one, Gentle J. and the additional en rock and roll out two tuneful nuggets here that you can surely get the hand-clap machine going on if you got an inkling that way. Be sure to wish Jesse a happy birthday on May 17th. I believe he'll be thirty-one this year—P.C. Jones

HEAVY TIMES "No Plans" b/w "Ice Age"

HEAVY TIMES
"No Plans" b/w "Ice Age" (HoZac)

"No Plans" is a bouncy little number with a sixties pop guitar lick. "Ice Age" is similarily so and it flies by much quicker than you would expect an Ice Age to. This record is so lo-fi, it sounds like it was recorded in a parking lot in Paw Paw, Michigan. As it turns out, however, it was recorded in a parking lot in Ypsilanti—Paw Paw Pete
