Washing Machines

Some bands wear their influences on their sleeves, but L.A.'s Washing Machines helpfully put them in their song titles: "Sonic Fuck" ain't so far from Sonic Youth, and "Vaseline" ain't so far from one of The Vaselines' sarcasto-pop tracks. (Alt. title: "Urinal Vaseline," just to rep for local noiseniks The Urinals, whose spirit is also at work here.) The opener of their recent EP is "Big Cyst," but if that's a band, it's beyond the search-engine capabilities of this writer — but those tore-up vocal hooks are adeptly Cobainian, and the topic is just one medical emergency away from Nirvana's "Aneurysm." (Plus there's the album Washing Machine by Sonic Youth.) Anyway, they obviously love what they love and they do it with gusto. If you wanna start a label called Sub SST Pop, here's your first signing.
