Creeps on Candy - Wonders of Giardia (1999)

Killer noise rock with hardcore tendencies from some dudes who've been involved with a whole bunch of Bay Area hardcore/punk bands over the years. Lands a bit on the more melodic side of the equation without sacrificing intensity or nastiness.

Track listing:
1. Nectar of the Gods
2. Her Song
3. Trial
4. Arena
5. Fish People
6. Porn Habit
7. Apples from Eden
8. Gravity's Angel
9. Truth-Truth-Lust
10. Life War
11. Descent
12. Dr. O
13. Bobby Ray
14. Scorpion Dance in the Floating World

More nasty sounds for nasty folks:


  1. Thanks a lot for this. I'm a huge Dead & Gone fan but this totally slipped under my radar.

  2. Thanks
    I completely missed this one
    ....why I still follow a handful of music blogs

  3. I've got an odd request for you. Do you possibly have Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live?

    1. I just have the LP, is that what you're looking for?

    2. That's the one! If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to listen to it again.

  4. It's good to hear this, I probably have heard it once or twice, don't remember. It's always been the "after Dead and Gone" band for me. Their music has always been a noise rock meets bay area punk Econochrist/Neurosis. Well especially the T.V. Baby 12" EP on Prank Records.

    Alternative Tentacles has a good bio on this band, with an impressive "ex members of" list.

  5. My band The Smites opened for these guys in 1998(7? 6?) in Lafayette, LA and I got this cd from them. Killer live show, nice fellas. Also I love this blog. Cheers!
