Album Review

Like a less pretentious and sloppy version of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the bass-less trio Vertigo makes a high-end, three-chord racket, but the band's song structures turn the central conceit of grunge on its head. If one accepts as fact that grunge began around the time of Black Flag's My War, when the boys from Lawndale discovered Black Sabbath and weed, it follows that the style's central tenet is a low-end rumble and plodding tempos. These ten songs have the basic feel of pre-Nevermind grunge (perhaps with a little of Screaming Trees' psychedelic fancies), but they're played notably faster, and songs like "Big Brother" have a squealing, pealing upper-register edge that puts them closer to Mudhoney's fuzzed-up garage rock than Soundgarden's sluggish grind. In fact, the songs lack only Mudhoney's knack for naïvely brilliant pop hooks for Vertigo to be an early classic of the style; as it stands, it sounds more like Kill Yr. Idols-era Sonic Youth trying to write straightforward punk songs.
