Gurf Morlix (from the album Caveman
Gurf Morlix (from the album Caveman available as a self-release) (by Bryant Liggett)
Gurf Morlix gets dirty on his latest. Caveman is a Rock’n’Roll record in need of a bath, an album that can be matched with descriptors like dark Folk, gritty Lounge and roughed-up Blues. If there’s a term that matches gruff and grumble, rough around the edges, and flat out tough, Gurf Morlix has captured them all on this effort; its unpolished and beautiful. He opens up with Bluesy riffs on “I Dig Your Crazy Brain” before getting into the resume-style title track, where he owns up to all sorts of admissions like ‘we write cave songs, play em’ all night long’. It’s an honest admission that sells you on a band you’d be a fool to now want to hang with.
Gurf Morlix then throws out some Louisiana boogie on “Mud Bugs”, drops a dirty love song on “Crash All Night”, then throws out a wonderful, six-minute homage to the year 1959; in that cut he drops a load of references to what must have been a glorious 365 days, from Cadillac cars to films like Some Like it Hot or North by Northwest, Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue album to William S Burroughs writing in Naked Lunch, and television like The Twilight Zone. Morlix is right, considering the aforementioned then ‘the sun did shine on 1959’.
Caveman is Gurf Morlix pushing out Punk Blues with a dark dive bar attitude. It’s a record like that friend who you have fun with that could get you into trouble, a tough release that will punch you in the gut and then buy you a beer while you’re still gasping for air. (by Bryant Liggett)
