A Fucking Elephant - Seven Inches 7" (Nefarious Industries)
By: David E. Gehlke
[6/10] With a name like A Fucking Elephant, there is surely some bizarreness to be had. And there is. Comprised solely of the drums and guitars duo of Matt and Greg, A Fucking Elephant is as every bit as gonzo as their name suggests. On their Seven Inches 7" (way to be literal), the duo combine technical, jazz metal excursions with the ferocity of grind. Maybe it's something akin to Zappa doing grind. Your guess is as good as ours.
Two songs here, the first being "I'm Addicted to Drugs & Sex and I Want You to Choke Me," the second is "A Bunch of Good-Looking Roundeyes." Despite the rather juvenile and not-so-comedic song titles, the pair manage to finesse some relatively interesting sparring, especially on "A Bunch of Good-Looking Roundeyes," where Greg's roundabout guitar playing seems poised for lunar takeoff. Not to leave out the fact Krallice main dude Colin Marsten recorded Seven Inches 7", so yeah, weirdness in the house. We're moving along.
