“Vitamins, minerals, and huge battleship-sinking ROCK”

Posted: June 26th, 2002, by Ollie

So it says on the back of the new Lightning Bolt DVD, entitled “The Power of Salad”. And I’m happy to confirm that the rock contained on said DVD could indeed sink ships. It’s a film made by Peter Glantz and Nick Noe which follows the Rhode Island band around on their 2001 US tour, with lots and lots of great live footage, interviews with fellow freakboys Pink And Brown and a bunch of ker-ay-zee animations that do bad things to you if you stare at them for too long. I know I’ve gone on a bit about this band on this weblog before, but they really are fucking tremendous, the most refreshing and original band I’ve heard in a very long time. Stupid fucking noise. With cats. Luke says they’re meant to be playing here some time soon, which will make me very happy indeed.


Ollie lives in Cambridge and puts on gigs as part of Crushing Death and Grief.
