(Cooking Vinyl)
Concerns over what is “punk” or “metal” wash away with each power stroke from these Norwegians. Retox will remind you of Iggy and the Stooges before they were informed of their importance. That English is Turbonegro’s second language allows for some delightful song titles like “Hell Toupee,” “Alpha Male” and “Hot and Filthy.” There is a lapse in taste when one answer to “What is Rock?” goes “Backwards messages to boys and girls to bring machine guns to school,” unless they know something we don’t. While maintaining the texture and testosterone of a fire-breathing demon, Turbonegro stays snappy and snotty enough to stoke the minimalists.
