The Geeky Dorks - "My Pussy Hurts"
(Slutfish Records 1999, SLUT017, 7" 45rpm)
From Aural Innovations #7 (July 1999)
Well this is an interesting package. The cartoon cover depicts the records's title comically and quite graphically. I figured it would just be some hardcore stuff, but then Keith noticed Dino Sorbello's name in the lineup playing Theremin and we're suspecting this is the same Dino Sorbello from the psych band Laughing Sky. Well there certainly is a slight hardcore edge to the music but it's really heavy psych with female vocals that are part whining and part spoken word. Side A with "My Pussy Hurts", features some great wailing acid guitar. The vocals simply go on about the singers pussy, which really must hurt because she doesn't let up about it. But lyrical nonsense aside, her singing style fits the music well. This is a real psych freakout with a bit of fuzzy metal guitar thrown in for good measure. The B-side track is "The Geeky Dorks Are Ugly" and is a bit more on the rockin' side though the band maintains the psych edge. I found myself intrigued by the Geeky Dorks after several listens to this single. This is their first release and I'll be interested to hear what they do next.
