Weedeater

And Justice For YÃall

Berserker/Game Two

And the scuzz-metal scene claims another victim, this monthÃs entry into the filth fold being WeedeaterÃs And Justice For YÃall (ingenious, no?). As if Eyehategod had a naughty, fun-lovinà little brother, Weedeater (featuring ex-Buzzov*en member Dave “Dixie” Collins, go figure) seems content to play with firecrackers while the older sibling plays with dynamite, kicking up shit with more accessibility and cohesiveness and overall less chaos and overkill and perhaps less character and aplomb, but similarly obsessed with bad drugs, bad hygiene, bad decibels, and general bad living. Abused the cliché may be, but bassist DixieÃs backwoods gurgle seriously sounds like Lemmy after downing a pitcher of Drano ñ actually, make that two pitchers of Drano chased by an ashtrayful of Tequila. It may be a goddamn mess, but it sure is damn near an enjoyable one. Just donÃt invite these dudes to your next kegger; theyÃre liable to drink all your beer and fuck your girlfriend.
