Review: Outtacontroller – Television Zombie (P Trash)

OuttacontrollerAt a time when so much music is packed with pretention, studio trickery and over ambition, Halifax punk band Outtacontroller proves to be a breath of fresh air. Throughout each of the 16 tracks featured on Television Zombie, the quartet brings together Ramones-inspired melodies and simplicity, rounded out with fuzzed-out guitars and gang vocals that will have you singing along in no time. With only one track (“Pizza Wolf”) surpassing the three-minute mark, songs like “R. Stevie Moore,” “D-Train,” “Mutations,” “Hit The Streets” and “Downtown” are concisely-written snapshots of punk perfection, proving less is indeed more.
