Elsewhere, "And Hell" and "The Master Plan" quake to bass lines that’d make Les Claypool and Primus shiver, and "The Government Has Cloned You" and "American Cancer" sport guitar licks not been heard since the halcyon days of Helmet and the Melvins. From start to finish, First It Boils, Then It Spills lingers just out of the mainstream grasp — like, say, Jesus Lizard. In short, the Evil Queens are the kind of fist-jacking rock-roll that loner — maybe stoner — kids will love and likely no one else will give two shits about. Now that’s a good band.
