Guitar Wolf

Guitar Wolf, Cheap Time, Hans Condor 

When: Wed., May 11, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $15

If the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion had gone with Pussy Galore's trashy ethos, or Royal Trux had been hooked on speed rather than junk, they might've suggested the feral, meter-pegging rumble of Japanese throttle rockers Guitar Wolf. The trio spends more time in the red than the U.S. government; they've been overdriving speakers with dirty, scalding garage-punk since the late '80s. The chunky roar sounds like a Fender in a blender, and their shows race through songs without a break. Singer and guitatist Seiji's lyrics are as incomprehensible as "Louie Louie," though that hardly diminishes enjoyment of the band's furious intensity. With Cheap Time and Hans Condor. —Chris Parker
