Terry – “Gronks”
Another single slides out from the upcoming new album by RSTB faves Terry. Hung on a healthy guitar crunch, a stomping beat, and a squiggle or two of synth, the song delivers in true Terry fashion. As always the band’s stripped but striking punk has more going on below the surface than most. The band’s Al Montfort sums it up nicely, “‘Gronks’ is a song about opportune wealth grabs, neo-imperialism, and entrenched colonialism. Twiggy forrest, Gina Rinheirt, the ghost of Macquarie, Flinders and Cook all sailing up the Parramatta River – “Greet me from the banks you gronks”. Or, The Mekons – Amnesia “I forgot to forget to remember”
It’s a ripper that’s wry and rough, barbed enough to get pretty caught up in the grey matter for a good while. Of that much, we can be sure. The new album, Call Me Terry, is out April 14th, a co-release between Upset The Rhythm and Anti-Fade.
