Announcing The Traps’ Boom Pow Awesome Wow: Another
grimy bit of gold from the vaults; “home made” music
from Providence, RI, to irk your co-workers with. When
you hear the word “garage,” does it make you want to leave
the room? I can relate. Beaten over the head, we’ve been.
The horse that was once merely dead is now paste on the linoleum.
Garage songs sell cars. Needless to say, The Traps
would be last on the list for ad men’s fancy. Sometimes you
see or hear something that is so completely the raw ingredient
of what was once great in your life that it stands
out…or in this case, hunches over with a thread of saliva
from its chin to its knee.
This is The Traps:
• From Providence, Rhode Island, circa 2003-2004
• Very, very heavy
• Very, very simple
• Recorded in an unwaveringly carefree manner
• Three young men: Two very mellow dudes playing guitars
thru towers of fried amplification, one very loud
dude from Illinois playing what sounds like a bass
drum and a 40-inch ride cymbal
Coachwhips played with them, then I came home and
tried to rip them off, but I wasn’t man enough to fit these
balls in the front seat. Castle Face has collected their six
tracks from a CDR-only EP as well as four tracks pulled
from a dusty box of cassettes by yours truly. Spit-shined
in mastering and with all-new original artwork by Dusty
Petersen, Boom Pow Awesome Wow is the perfect antidote
to the G-word selling more yet meaning less.
