2015’s quick succession of two full-length albums by Austin, TX,
trio Spray Paint—Punters on a Barge in June on Australia’s Homeless
Records followed by Dopers via Austin’s Monofonus Press—
showed the band repeatedly visiting some proverbial “next level” relative
to the steady developmental trajectory framed by their preceding
2012-2014 arrival-and-vision-quest phase (itself a three-album, three-
7-inch chunk of catalog not appropriate for dismissal). At the risk of
corniness in conveying the sterling truth, Feel the Clamps could be
considered to represent drummer Chris Stephenson, guitarist Cory
Plump and other guitarist George Dishner arriving at a “next level,”
but next after what? They appear to have skipped a few.
It would be inaccurate to call Feel the Clamps the band’s “definitive”
document because it only “defines” where the band is at this
stage, and the impressive distance between right now and the trio’s
genesis less than five years ago. Spray Paint is hyper-prolific because
these guys have something that needs to stay up in the world’s grill.
A rapid-fire output is sometimes confused with “worth a shit.” You
know why the world is choked with aggressively mediocre music?
Because the aggressively mediocre are really, really prolific and have
amazing work ethics. But Spray Paint is no relation to the stylistic
transients who couch-surf sub-genres in what should be a new movement
tagged “try-too-hardcore.” Their linear path of inspiration suggests
there won’t even be a language to describe what the trio is making
five years from now. Feel the Clamps will clear the fence of any
remaining solitary butts and if not, it’s recommended said body part be
checked for its owner’s head. —Andrew Earles, 2016
