Collaboration EP between Spray Paint & The Rebel
Record/Vinyl + Digital Album
This is not for everyone or even most people but, if you’re still reading this paragraph, it may be for you. - Bill Pearis (BKVEG)
The Rebel’s hilarious and blunt lyrics are a great fit for the mesmeric drums and guitars of Spray Paint, usually locked into some sort of queasy stasis until the tape runs out or a series of unfortunate events disturbs the rhythm. - YellowGreenRed
For the third chapter of their collaboration series (if I miss anything), the experimental Noiserocker Spray Paint from Austin, Texas is on a collision course with the London Weirdo Folk and Garage Blues project The Rebel. What came out of it so far is my favorite of the series, but I'm not quite right in the head. - ONETWOXU.de
"I dunno, man, sometimes genius doesn’t open the door. It just walks right through it." - Roland Woodbe
"Drag, psyche, wired, post punk singing in my nightmare MARK E SMITH of the future who should not let children and parents collide each other's bad places." -- Big Love , Japan

Last year, as a co-headlining tour of Europe commenced, a pact was proposed. What if there was a spontaneous in-studio merger between the deadpan deconstructionists of England’s singular The Rebel and Austin post-punk aggregate Spray Paint? In the tradition of the finest Marvel Comics team-ups, this 12” EP, known to the world as Charles’ And Roy’s Purple Wang, came to exist.
C & R’s Purple Wang EP features tour n-jokes and astute observations getting wrangled into impressive songscapes, such as on “Look! Air Innit?” which pulses with a startling immediacy and unexpected intensity. Throbbing synth tickle features prominently on this opening salvo. “Moron Water” splashes around until it settles into an impatient groove, while “Space Ghettos” and “Heads On Spikes” hew closer to The Rebel’s brand of cheap keyboard dementia. “Mitch, Mitch, Mitch (Huntsman Reaction)” most closely echoes Spray Paint’s patented paranoid jams featuring their distinctive guitar clash. “MES OBVS” is a sideways tribute to an iconic figure who still managed to be as slippery as quicksilver. Wallers has always had a way with a title, and the deliciously-named “Let Me Hit Whitney Houston’s Last Joint” revisits the kick-off track and has an unmistakable Country Teasers piss rivulet running right through it -- snatches of piano and some fever dream’s idea of what country & western music sounds like in the waiting room for Purgatory. -e/n
