Description

'Secrets to Superflipping' is Yikes' debut release and it's a gleeful assault of ripping distortion and hypnotic melodies. Side A documents five studio recordings, made under the watchful eye of Weasel Walter, while Side B holds four prime cuts from a typically riotous live show, offering a tantalising glimpse at the raw fury and power that Yikes possess in the flesh. "Cars" is garage in slo-mo, teaming up police-siren guitar lines, with Dwyer's trademark fuzzed-up bawl and motorik toms that thump on like they could all night. On "Putrifiers" the howls are strewn with delay, and ping-pong off walls of guitar scree, as the drums continue to pound despite the chaos around them. "Pink Cigars" is a rutting pool of garage gloop, stammering on triumphantly before twisting into "Troubles", which thunders like a scuzzy heartbeat, punctuated by Dwyer's freaked guitar mangle and distinctive caterwaul.
