Timmy’s Organism

The garage demons are runnin’ amok this fall as renown gutter necromancer with a telecaster Timmy Vulgar lays down a new slab of dust choked bile on hometown label Lo & Behold. Vulgar has never steered me wrong and, as he digs deeper into his Organism moniker, this band only becomes further entrenched as the brutal defensive pincer of his personal universe (see also: Human Eye, Clone Defects). Eating Colors culls together a few singles that seeped out of the swamp following the band’s brush with infamy as part of Third Man’s expanded roster, but it all careens together seamlessly into a prime slice of Detroit fuzz as the Organism’s fourth album proper.

Vulgar channels the specter of Don Van Vliet as he gargles acidic syllables over the Motor City’s true export – raw, unrefined, diesel-burning rock ‘n roll. He hoists his guitar like a sonic halberd, cutting down swaths of listeners swarming to the mecca of diseased fuzz that spews from the band’s aural wellspring. The Organism is best looked at indirectly, so as not to turn to stone on sight of the beast, but its best listened to at top volume, careening out of car windows and down cracked city blocks like an air raid siren of doom for all to hear. If ever there was a band that embodied, embraced and emboldened the idea that rock might open a mental portal to another plane, Timmy’s Organism is that band. The very blood of the band runs green with a radioactive pulse that’s melting minds with guitar vomit and on this latest slab, they’re bound to induce a nervous breakdown or two. This might be just what you need to sandblast the barnacles of 2017 from your system.

Timmy’s Organism – “Wolfman Running”

Detroit’s favorite source of psychic damage is back in action. Following their outing on Third Man they’re readying an album for local label Lo & Behold. The band’s had a couple of 7″s in the run up and they gather a few of those tracks along with plenty of unheard slime on this new collection of Michigan’s best scuzz n’ fuzz. “Wolfman Running” pins itself to some Sabbath-sized riffs with Timmy Vulgar shaking the voodoo down over the top, proselytizing the dark arts and generally doing his best to keep things unhinged. Its always good to keep tabs on Vulgar, whether its the Organism or Human Eye, there’s usually rank weirdness to be had. Eating Colors envelops the world on August 29th.

Timmy’s Organism – “Lick Up Your Town”

When news of a new Timmy’s Organism release wafts down the halls, there’s a general feeling of dread and motion sickness that kicks in. The band aren’t made for these, or any times. The noxious vibes that emanate from their stacked amps can only be set to an irradiated boil and the newest slab from Total Punk is leaking its fair share of vileness. Even from a two-tracker, the band make their mark. Their profile was notched up to meet the public eye through a Third Man record last year. It was a well deserved escalation of terms that was meet with far too little thunder. Perhaps the populace hasn’t been to see Vulgar and co. tear down a stage. Its a sight to behold and a true marker of the band’s sci-fi punk prowess. New track’s a scorcher and well recommended fodder to heat up your turntable’s needle.

Timmy’s Organism – “Back In The Dungeon”

Ah bless Third Man for bankrolling the insanity of Timmy’s Organism. Those who have experienced the band in the live setting know that theatricality is so ingrained in Tim Lampinen’s DNA that giving him a budget can only lead to psychotic episodes and, in this case, a D&D breakdown fueled by cosmic VHS tapes. The track, from last year’s killer LP Heartless Heathen, is still a stomper, and its only given a gothic goose with the addition of the Organism’s Game-of-Thrones-on-a-Halloween-pop-up shop-budget visual accompaniment. You don’t own Heartless Heathen you say? Why the hell not? This should be reason enough.

Timmy’s Organism – “Heartless Heathen”

If you haven’t had the pleasure, there really is nothing better than Timmy Vulgar on stage in his crazed hobo, psychedelic warlord element. This video might be the best approximation of the experience I’ve seen next to feeling the paint thinner vibes head on from the stage. Gotta love that Jack White’s honoring a hometown hero with the release of this record on Third Man’s new imprint. The people need more crazy in their life and, hell, Timmy can shred with the best of them so more power to the folks that find their way down the rabbit hole this way. If you haven’t picked up a copy of the long player yet, then now’s the time.

Timmy’s Organism

All right, back on duty after a week’s vacation and its nice to find an old friend in the stacks. Timmy Vulgar, as permanent a Detroit fixture as corruption and hockey, returns to his gas leak garage project Timmy’s Organism for another grapple with reality. Long since my favorite incarnation of Vulgar’s cracked corner of the universe, the Organism is a bastion of fuzz crunch and pop debris, mangled and kitted out in tin foil hats before being flung out into the unwelcome world. On Heartless Heathen, Vulgar finds his way through the exhaust billows and clears the room with a few down and straightforward soul-jerkers. Perhaps its the inspiration of jumping onto Third Man’s Audio Social Dissent series of releases, perhaps its just always been in ‘im. But for the initiated, there’s also plenty of fry here to love as well; those sickening gasps of guitar that seem to scream out of the instrument against its will, the fifteen foot howl of Vulgar’s vocals building like a storm and the barbed wire beat stomping like a broken jackhammer. These are the hallmarks that I’ve come to anticipate from Timmy’s Organism and they’re all here in abundance. If Jack’s holdin’ up hometown heroes and garage punks these days then bless his pale visage for knocking this piece of sickness out onto the table.
