Review – Still Single – The Axemen – Sac Tap Nut Jam LP (Spacecase)

The Axemen – Sac Tap Nut Jam LP (Spacecase)

Reprinted From:
After 21 years, New Zealand’s Axemen return, stronger than ever – many might argue that this new album, the puckishly charming Sac Tap Nut Jam, is their most vital and rockin’ release since the classic Three Virgins double LP. These eight songs have a real “encased in mothballs” sorta feel to them, in that they rock with a crooked commitment to the late ‘80s and early ‘90s where they initially left off. Comparisons to bent outfits like Ween or The Frogs or even Royal Trux seem apparent to me, maybe not to you, but this world we live in is big enough that differences of opinion can coexist. But there’s only room for one word – the final word – in that the Axemen are still rockin’ with a cause, exactly as they were throughout the initial span of their career. These songs have great riffs and a bluesy, devil may care demeanor that re-establishes the landbridge between central Ohio and New Zealand, and show the wisdom and freedom one can muster from letting oneself go to seed; all the better to sow years down the line. 500 copies.
