Australian Guitar - - Cd Reviews - MATT DO­RIA

Three things in life are cer­tain: death, taxes, and a new al­bum from Mel­bourne grind­lords King Par­rot be­ing as ball-tear­ingly heavy as an ele­phant on steroids, charg­ing at you at full speed in the wall-of-death from hell. De­light­fully apt in its ti­tle, Ug­lyPro­duce is a very meat-and-pota­toes af­fair, but one that man­ages to feel fresh amidst a ris­ing class of im­i­ta­tors. Ari White and An­drew Liv­ing­stone-Squires are con­sis­tently ruth­less in their string abuse, trad­ing sour chugs and whistling so­los to their cold hearts’ con­tent. Slathered in ex­cess over the band’s sig­na­ture flip­pant lyri­cisms, gnash­ing drums and bass tones from Wayne Slat­tery that pulse with a blood­cur­dling sex­i­ness, the pair make LP3 one beau­ti­ful mess of noise.
