Undersea Explosion Review
by Kevin Wierzbicki

Undersea Explosion is a trio out of Brooklyn made up of bass player Jerold H., drummer David Mendez and a very foreboding vocalist/guitarist named Jim Paul. Not that Paul sounds mean or threatening; it's more like he's the aural equivalent of one of those guys who walks the street carrying a sign that says, "The end is nigh!" He just conveys a feeling that he knows something that you don't. And although he's talking, he's really not telling. At least he's not giving the unencrypted truth. By the time you figure it out, it's too late for you! USX tap into the spirit of various other NYC bands, mostly long gone ones like the Velvet Underground ("True Believers"). They also like Blue Oyster Cult a lot, using one of that band's riffs for "Where We Live" and substituting castanets (!) for BOC's beloved cowbell. "The Trepanator" is an acid washed '60s garage groove with a Chuck Berry-style guitar solo in the middle and the sound of a power drill at the end. The drill is there because the song is supposedly inspired by a true story wherein a girl drills a hole in her head seeking enlightenment. The rest of us will just have to keep this E.P. spinning.
