Review by Neil St.Laurent
Thanks to be band for the cassette
Occassionally one might have the urge to put away the extreme music
and pick up something a little easier on the speakers. One such
choice would be Gippy Tummy, with a sound that is somewhat similar to
a variety of classic 80's metal, which we all know better now and
simply call hard rock.
This four song recording provides a decent sampling (I can really
only assume this) of what the band Gippy Tummy has to offer. "Pull"
starts out with the song "Tricky Dive" that dabbles in the lighter
and alternative sides of hard music, whilst maintaining a basic
guitar driven melody. The moderate pace of the music continues into
"Bought My Cigar" with the added benefit of a stronger bass track
that is heard clearly within the music. Place on top of it are the
often poorly mixed vocals of "G. Org", which are incidentally of the clean
to non-intense shouting style (standard alternative).
"Pull" is very much like what your local heavy alternative band would
sound like if they did a demo. While the recording doesn't hold any
brilliant elements, the quality of the recording and listenable sound
shouldn't be overly downplayed. Although a nicer production would be
desired "Pull" is an all around enjoyable
recording without any intrinsic musical flaws.
