Triclops - Cafeteria Brutalia Review

by Kevin Wierzbicki

Have you ever heard a song sung in a neo-Melanesian Creole dialect indigenous to New Guinea? You have! Well not like "Mi Plisboy (I am a Policeman)" you haven't! Singer Johnny Geek rants and raves through the first half of the song, the band playing in a Rage against the Machine style before abruptly standing the tune on its head, finishing the song like they're Jane's Addiction. That's the real fun here; the surprises. Technically there are only four songs on this long (25 minute) E.P. but most of them incorporate at least two ideas. "Bug Bomb," for example, starts the pests to skittering with a speedy cacophony set to virtually indecipherable lyrics; a few minutes later things slow down to vocal-less sludge and ultimately a standstill as the toxin takes effect. But that's not all! "Bug Bomb" continues with a squonky Black Sabbath riff as Geek rails against fluorescent mosquitoes and other disease-carrying vectors that are eating at his eyeballs. The song takes up almost half of Cafeteria Brutalia's playing time and finally ends on a Police-like note. Not quite as convoluted, "Salton" sticks to one musical style as Geek, in his own unique way, chronicles the degradation of the Salton Sea, California's mistake that became a lake. Cafeteria Brutalia is a great example of controlled lunacy---it's "out there" but not so far that you can't see the goodness in its deviant little heart.
