1 - DES DEMONAS - BAY OF PIGS - (7") 
SLOVENLY


Washington DC band DES DEMONAS have exploded into the national consciousness with a debut LP on In The Red a few months back, and they're not letting up now... as diseased organ-soaked and fizz-drenched as it can get. "Bay of Pigs" keeps it real with it's pounding chorus "Feeling like a Victim of Tiiiiiime" so naturally this works on many levels. Featuring a guitar player from Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, who also did time in The Make-Up, it's got credentials to spare, but this six-foot-five Kenyan lead singer (Jacky Cougar Abok, ex-Gino and the Goons) is gonna steal the show for certain. There's a faint Deadly Snakes vibe when the organ tone really hits, too, but this is much, much, heavier and less quaint, with the guttural vocals steering this into a stomping mess of noise. Far more rambunctious and unholy, far more strained and angry. - Todd Novak, Victim of Time

2 - DES DEMONAS - DES DEMONAS - (LP) 
IN THE RED


"The South will never rise again," Jacky Cougar Abok intones in a manner that suggests he is looking straight into your eyeballs while singing the opening track on Des Demonas debut album on In The Red Records. His hand may be around your neck as well! Sounding like The Last Poets acid tripping to 60s Sunset Strip, the band drags you on a wild ride of fuzzy guitars and swirling Farfisa organ, while the bass and drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain. And thats just the first song! The band hails from Washington, DC, and have been denizens of the byways and highways of the citys musical underground for years. Jacky Cougar Abok is the six-foot-five-inch tall Kenyan punk singer who has drummed with Thee Lolitas and Foul Swoops. Guitarist Mark Cisneros has bent strings with Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds, Deathfix, and Medications, and has pounded the traps for The Make-Up and Benjy Ferree, the latter alongside organist Paul Vivari. Joe Halladay (Citygoats) on bass and Ryan Hicks (Suns Of Guns) on drums round out this squared circle of sight and sound. The songs on this album range from Nuggets-style snottiness on "Tuff Turf," to the brash warnings of "Liez" ("Lies. only seem to matter if you never wise up"), to the stomper "Psychedelic Soldier" and cool psycho creeper "Say You Tried," to the hard boiled 70s punk of Swahili-sung "Golden Eggs." When Abok sings "There are no vampires in Africa," it may be a warning. It may be a fact. Or it may be a whole lot of unrelenting scuzzy fun. Dig the Des Demonas. Play it loud. Twist your wig.
