when idea outstrips execution
: "Laser Bitch"Genghis Tron
is some absolutely ridiculous band from Poughkeepsie that merges the currently very in vogue new wave stylization with some thrashin’ scream-ass grind-metal nonsense. It’s a wondrous concoction that’s at once awesome and hideously awful. Their ep Cloak of Love
is quite beloved with the younger staffers at WZBC
. I give them points for the concept, but get bored quickly when listening to the disc, as every song sounds practically the same. It can be interesting in isolated doses, though.
