The Evaporators - Ripple Rock
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Evaporators - Ripple RockLed by Nardwuar the Human Serviette, the Evaporators take their garage rock to absurd lengths. The Vancouver band’s last album featured the frenzied “I Gotta Rash” (“Gimme some ointment, I need an appointment”). Here, Nardwuar sings the shambolic “(I’ve Got) Icicles on My Testicles,” a suitable affliction for a Canuck culture freak who writes about Canada’s alleged KGB spy Gerda Munsinger, and covers “Barney Rubble is My Double” by Liberal Party hack Warren Kinsella’s ’70s teenage band the Hot Nasties. Wacky.
