Wolverton Brothers – “Memory Thieves” (play)
Another epic track from The Wolverton Brothers, who already won my Gr8 Song Title award for “Cops Nab Drunken Legless Burglar.” Proudly declaring themselves OLD, UGLY, and LOUD on their site, this band is a cre8ive force to be reckoned with, conjuring a massive, distinctive sound. In “Memory Thieves” they sound like a an old school power trio interpreting goth punk, to produce a sort of psychedelic surf prog that exceeds expectations as the piece unfolds. Brilliant, minimal lyrics, and a fully realized performance from this Cincinnati Ohio institution.
