DSC00270 This track from Starantula's eponymous 2007 Smegma Studios-recorded debut doesn't quite capture the troupe's explosive live appeal, but the growling riffage and keening synth lines (from Fireballs Of Freedom and Divining Rod members' Kelly Gately and David 'Roach' Simmons) fueling vocalist Seantos' inimitable cock-rock panto gives some clue as to their unhinged, ever-on-the-precipice-of-breakdown party-metal frenzy. And neatly illustrates a certain sort of Portland Saturday night.
