Wasted Monuments: CD
I am a huge fan of the New Mexican Disaster Squad family of bands, and Gatorface is no exception. Actually, y’know what? I’ll say I wasn’t completely wild about the EP. I thought it was good, but I didn’t love it like I loved the Virgins LP or the No Friends stuff. But goddangit, this full-length is a slayer. It’s certainly still in the post-Adolescents world that these dudes seem to kinda like, but I’m not complaining. It’s no coincidence that my undying love for Adolescents/Flower Leperds/Abandoned/ADZ/etc. has a direct correlation with my love for everything these central Floridian gentlemen churn out. That said, it’s not derivative even for a second. I can’t really think of anything outside of these fellas’ other bands to compare Gatorface’s writing to, and I think it has something to do with the kinda start-stop, off-time writing/riffing style. If you pay attention, there’s something very unique about the structure of a lot of the main riffs in these songs, and I find it creates a totally different mood than a more straightforward hardcore approach would. It’s cleverer, more thought out, and that makes it a lot more interesting and ups the replay value significantly. Anyway, it’s just fucking fantastic. –Dave Williams (No Idea)
