Album Review

Clone Defects coasted to a dead stop in late 2004, freeing Timmy "Vulgar" Lampinen to work up the spattered, enjoyably unhinged art-punk of Human Eye. Recorded with the Piranhas' Ryan Sabatis, the band's self-titled In the Red debut emphasizes muddy, two- and three-note basslines that give Vulgar's third-generation Iggy vocals something weighty to lean on. The guitar skitters on the edge of that bass, too — "Girl Namned Troble," (sic) "Episode People," and "Age" hew closer to a recognizable structure, but Human Eye is better when the instruments freak out as much as Vulgar. "Car Was Alive" is a series of staccato phrases fighting with studio echo, "First Taste of Crime"'s take on vintage English punk could explode at any second, and "Seymour" showcases Vulgar's irritating/captivating version of singing. Human Eye aren't strangers to guitar feedback, but there are also stretches of what could be an echoplex or some other destructive sound device. They wail pure noise on "Time Continuum" and spend part of "Sly Glass Foam" exploring a similar space. (Sabatis' guest sax on the latter is a nice touch, as is the xylophone tinkling politely beneath belches of electronic squelch.) Single "Chew Raw Meat" cleans up a little, offering a compact guitar riff over bass hum, hyperactive drums, and a title chant guaranteed to make it an anti-radio hit. But Human Eye's best showing has to be "Kill Pop Culture"." As leering keys and deliriously fuzzy guitar fill out the bass-heavy background, lines like "I'm gonna kill Eminem with a pair of sheers/Electrical rollium guitar attack with ear piercing noise," make Vulgar sound like Jonathan Richman on a very, very bad day.

Biography

Formed: 2004 in Detroit, MI

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

After the dissolution of the Clone Defects in 2004, Timmy Vulgar formed the mind-expanding, speaker-destroying band Human Eye shortly afterwards in Detroit, Michigan. Consisting of Vulgar on guitar and vocals, as well as Johnny LZR on synthesizers, Bradley Hale on bass, and Hurricane William on drums, the band blends raw punk fury with blown-out garage psych to create a whirlwind of acid punk chaos. The band made their self-titled debut in 2005 on In the Red Records, and quickly made a name for themselves...
