From deep down in Melbourne’s rock pool, crustacean-sensations, Shrimpwitch have emerged from the waves to blow landlubbers away with their debut shrimp-charged garage punk and mock rock EP, Eggs Eggs Eggs, out May 5 on Hysterical Records.
The fabulous two piece, Georgi Goonsack and Kim Prawn, are the first release from the Hysterical Records label. Their ferociously raw and high-energy rock and roll performances explore the hardness and softness of the Shrimpwitch shell with uproarious banter, rock outfits and humour.
Eggs Eggs Eggs is an unrelenting force, echoing early 80s new-wave and garage punk. It’s a fifteen-minute party featuring the kind of filth and fabulousness you’d expect from a work inspired by the band’s favourite trash filmmaker, John Waters. Kim Prawn, delivering wicked solos and crunchy riffs on her black sparkly guitar, Ursula while Goonsack screams menacingly and thunders on the drums, favouring crashes and non-stop kick for a fast and ominous rhythm.
The opening cut to this tasty shrimp cocktail comes in the form of, “Smokey Business”, an emotional garage-banger with a morose rock and roll surf tone, The short sharp salty anthem, “Minimum Chips” spreads the message of getting by and eating fries. Further along the EP, “Lust For A Kick” encapsulates the rock ferocity that we love about the furious duo; Georgi Goonsack notes it’s “a lustful, boozy, hedonistic tale of pleasure and pain”, while “Egg Paranoia” is the creepy Shrimpwitch anthem where the EP gets it’s name.
