Hot Snakes

Suicide Invoice

(Members From Rocket From The Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Delta 72, Mule, Beehive And The Barracudas)

Swami 111

Released on June 11, 2002

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

The Hot Snakes much anticipated second LP/CD, Suicide Invoice, matches the intensity of their debut while surpassing it in every other respect. Recorded by the band themselves, the sound is a collision of wailing downstrokes and booming, sinister, drone. Hot Snakes is a collaboration of members of Rocket From The Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Delta 72, Mule And Beehive and the Barracudas, with participants living on both sides of the country. Suicide Invoice contains a more varied assault than the debut, with more of an emphasis directed towards creating music as a band. As a result, everything sounds more cohesive and ultimately closer to the band's live sonic barrage.

Unlike the other stuff I've heard by the Rick Fork/John Reis crew, I found this album particularly difficult to stomach. It's not just that they play dissonant notes; Audit In Progress has plenty of those, but on that release they at least let Reis's guitar heroics in every once in a while to save the day. Suicide Invoice doesn't bring that crucial element into the mix until track 3, and it only pops back in at inopportune moments later on. If I didn't know any better, I'd say this was a slew of outtakes from the last Drive Like Jehu record, but the more likely explanation is that it's only an attempt to sound like a bunch of outtakes from a Drive Like Jehu record. In the grand scheme of things, this really isn't a magnificent work in the Swami catalog, although if you don't have any such works already, you should probably go ahead and get this one out of the way.

Hot damn! This is what punk should have evolved into today. These guys kick so much ass...I've become a big fan of Swamii Records. This CD is especially for fans of Rocket From the Crypt and Drive Like Jehu, but in my biased opinion Hot Snakes is better. Bottom line, buy this...and Automatic Midnight...and the new one coming out in August/September. Peace kids.

You know Drive Like Jehu, right? Consisting of Rick Froberg, John "Speedo" Reis (of Rocket From The Crypt fame), and two other guys who I forget, they were a very influential emo-core outfit. (If I'm not mistaken, RFTC and DLJ were ranked #1 and #2, respectively, in a recent poll of greatest San Diego bands ever.) All those bands that you kids like, with your newfangled Finches and Poison the Well and all that blah blah blah, they owe a great deal to the Jehus. DLJ broke up back in 1994 or 95 or something, after releasing two phenomenal albums. So then Rick called Speedo up and talked about Jehu, and something happened, and Hot Snakes came to be. Their first album is almost as good as this, but this is Froberg and Reis at their finest: melancholy melodies, reminiscent of a more countrified Fugazi (trust me, it sounds better than it looks on teh intarweb), droning swarms of guitars, and overall ROCK. A must buy, and a serious contender for Album Of 2002 (tm).
