Drooling Clerics: Handful of Earth (cassette)
Eight tracks of buried needle basement psych, loud and proud, ripped ragged immediately upon return from Jokas’ Discount Beverage.
Jason Millard and Levi Haga are long time pals and co-conspirators, but this debut from DROOLING CLERICS is their first public offering as a duo. The project cemented their direction after Millard read the obituary of thought leader Reg Presley, while sitting in the Waterville, Maine public library.
Rooted in the troglodytic pound of ‘60s teenagers and ‘70s string mashers, but burst apart to new standards of oblivion and fuzz wah devotion. ”Handful of Earth" brings strange rock-attack back to the forefront of the contemporary collective consciousness, for only the most blown of domes. Crack your best egg into the frying pan and meditate.
Cryptic song topics include subliminal images, a metaphorical journey to the local corner store, the fall of mighty kingdoms, and reflections on the inevitable endings of mortal man.
