The Aberrant punk idea gave way to more of a Beasts Of Bourbon/Panther Burns concept after their first year or so together prior to Musk recording a widely hailed debut LP with Chris Woodhouse in two days (see below), but ’Second Skumming’ was completed in a decadent four (suck on that, Pink Floyd). You could say they’ve grown or matured, but YOU’D BE MISTAKEN. Like all great sequels (“The Godfather II”, “Bring It On : All Or Nothing”, “Eddie & The Cruisers II : Eddie Lives”) MUSK 2 amplifies and expands on themes that made ‘Musk’ a favorite amongst misanthrobes & collector skum alike (or is that an oxymoron?) and does so with laser-like focus.
Great Los Angeles trio – a grinding, slowed-down punk rock that’s all the more intense in the power it holds back rather than sprays all over the club. Menacing! Reminiscent Weirdos / Crime / Urinals but moves beyond all that, too. – Goner
“Led by Dulcinea Gonzalez on vocals and guitar, the four-piece are driven by the bubble gum melody of the Ramones, 70s power pop and bourgeois snacks.” – Noisey
