LOOSE UNIT
House Of Piper Laurie
Independent/Firestarter

Long-time dark horses of the Perth rock’n’roll scene, Loose Unit have dropped album #1, a non-stop bullshit-tight slab of desert rock. It’d be a stretch of the imagination to claim that the results were classic, but there’s certainly enough going on here to sustain through multiple listens.

The album starts out balls-to-the-wall, and while the flat-out rock of Not For Free is rad for getting the blood pumping, preferably with the pedal to the metal, ultimately the band’s strength is its subtlety.

Sepia Colours, for example, is instantly memorable for its “I won’t take no from you this time” refrain; while the album’s title track is a restrained affair that lulls the listener into a false sense of security before dropping a huge “And I will make a believer outta you” outro. It’s an entirely appropriate sentiment.

The album’s strength lies in these songs, and the relentless Caroline, which demonstrates the band’s gift for melding melody with classic heavy stoner rock.

Sitting somewhere between The Bronx and Queens Of The Stone Age, with maybe a big dose of Clutch thrown in, Loose Unit are probably one of the best proponents of this kinda non-stop rock in town. For fans of this kind of thing, this album should be a compulsory acquisition.
