Tu-Plang...Kon-Uauk (Reprise Records)
By: Alex Steininger
America has The Bloodhound Gang, but Australia has Regurgitator. From offensive lyrics to funny lyrics, it's all covered here. And now they're available in the U.S. Run and hide, or come and face the music. Either way, they'll find you...so you better not delay.
The CD starts off with "I Sucked A Lot Of Cock To Get Where I Am." Hmm...if that title just doesn't tell a story you don't want to hear, I don't know what does. A soft, melodic pop-rock track that starts off with the lyrics "I Sucked A lot of Cock to Get Where I Am/I Only Want to Be The Best That I Can." The music is enjoyable, and I think these guys are having fun touching your nerves and making them jump and swerve. This CD actually sets the mood for the entire CD. It starts you out weak musically, and strong lyrically. But as the CD progresses, it's going to kick you ass with both! " G7 Dick Electro Boogie" starts off with a very hip-hop intro, and then adds some distorted vocals into the mix. A very unusual style. Unique...this is a style that could only be done by Regurgitator. "Miffy's Simplicity" starts out in classic Korn fashion. It never does pick up. "Music is Sport" starts out with a weird industrial intro. Then the vocals enter, and the song jumps into a rap track. "Young Bodies Heal Quickly" is a pop-rock song with hooks and speed. It gets fast, throws a hook your way, and slows down. Just when you don't realize it, it quickly picks back up again. "Doorselfin" finishes off the CD. It throws a little curve ball your way. Everything is strange. It's just a hands down weird track.
These guys are very diverse, I'll give them that. But they're too weird for me. I just couldn't get the grip of their style after several listens. I'll give the CD a C for it's effort, but for the most part I just don't understand them.
