Released: 1998, Independent
With great sound for an independent release, some funny CD-ROM shit as well, Blister Rust serve up a mixed bag of goodies for one and all. Scatterbrain meets Hanoi Rocks meets the 90's. Make any sense to you??? Well, to me Blister Rust are pretty much a melting pot of these ingredients.
Hailing from New York, the first thing that strikes me about these guys is their sense of humor, and its pretty goddamn twisted. With names such as Otto Spumo (guitars), Rx Rasputin (vocals), Dug Spoon (bass) and Terry Toajin (drums) you would think these guys don't take themselves very seriously, but the 10 tracks on this CD are pretty impressive.
First off, it's hard to classify Blister Rust - they're not metal, but they do deserve attention. From the 90's feel of Mrs. Christ (which reminds me of Foo Fighters), the punch-drunk stomp of Storyteller and the off-the-wall lyrics to NBC, this CD covers all areas providing great vocals (sounding like Jessie Dupree of Jackyl at times) and straight ahead rock-n-roll. With great sound for an independent release, some funny CD-ROM shit as well, Blister Rust serve up a mixed bag of goodies for one and all. (Ed note: Visit http://www.blisterrust.com
