Jake Robertson and Billy Gardner started Ausmuteants in late 2011 in
Geelong, Australia, after having played since teenagers in trad garage bands
(The Frowning Clouds and The Living Eyes, respectively). Per the norm for
good-looking rebels who play by their own rules, they cracked the shits,
broke loose with just a synth and drums and, in early 2012, knocked out the
Split Personalities tape. The addition of Melbourne’s loose-unit Marc Dean
on bass followed, and soon after, ex-Canberran hardcore non-guitarist Shaun
Connor on guitar.
Their second album Amusements (note: not self-titled) comes from this
fledgling time as a full band, with a heavy dose of the duo’s songs. Since the
runaway international success of that record and playing every second weekend
in Melbourne, they’re rocked-out full-tilt with all four members writing
and singing new songs—23 of which were recorded live with vocal overdubs
in the basement of an old ice cream factory by Mikey Young, then mixed
and mastered in his idyllic coastal abode. Again the band and their Australian
label Aarght! Records strained the friendship with song picks, agreeing on
thirteen to make up Order of Operation.
This record is better than Amusements any way you cut it: songs, lyrics,
delivery and sound. It opens with Connor’s forehead- and thigh-slapping musical
and lyrical debut, “Freedom of Information.” From there, songs range
from balls-to-the-wall punkers (“Felix Tried to Kill Himself”; “Boiling
Point”), well-considered workouts (“Family Time”; “Tunnel Vision”) and
unguarded tenderness (“Wrong”; “Looney Bin”).
Even people who couldn’t stand their earlier juvenile bullshit are now
onboard. The toilet humor has been ditched, the band has gotten nasty and
written songs about other people’s problems, terrible bands, fighting crime
and trading sex for porn. Young was heard to say after one particular vocal
take: “You deserve to be bashed for that.” The song’s on the record; you guess
which one.
Order of Operation is now their defining moment. If you don’t like this
record, you pretty much won’t ever like Ausmuteants.
