REVIEW: Fu Manchu - Signs Of Infinite Power

I have alot of time for the purity and honesty of Fu Manchu.

Much like the Ramones,Motorhead and even more so AC/DC you know you can rely on Fu Manchu to deliver. No nonsense or intellectual wankery.

They have always stayed true to their punk infected musical aesthetic. A tiny shade of Greg Ginn in a lead here, a nod and a wink to the circle jerks there. The fast robotic Devo like riffing. Well that's what my brain says to me when I am listening. They are that moment crossing between the 70's and 80's ala' Stacey Peralta from dogtown to bones brigade. Fu Manchu always married the best of seventies rock with early hardcore sounds and its why I unapologetically believe they are super fucking cool.

The band has turned the fuzz, overdrive and wah back to 11 with "we must obey" and this is in the same glorious vein. Now I think I have said enough already to negate the clearly redundant act of talking about the tracks themselves either you know what the fu sound like and you are wise to the score or you are ignorant to the band that alongside Monster Magnet and Kyuss created the stoner rock sound and need to get educated.
