Reviewing Kreeps’ Spirit Clinic

So when Production Manager Robert “Nix” Nixon handed me this album by his friend Dom Kreep’s band, Kreeps, it was tough not to cringe. Criticizing a friend’s band is always tough and awkward. Nix insisted that he wasn’t fishing for a review, however. He simply wanted me to hear it. Phew.
After hearing it, I wanted to review it, because it’s so much damned fun. Opening tune “Supernova” sounds like Joy Division doing the “Monster Mash,” somber vocals and whacky sci-fi noises. Oh but wait, next track “Geekula” is trashy punk of the highest order. I could go on, but what we essentially have here is a labor of love (and pain, and hate) that saw Kreep take in a ton of influences and more emotions. It’s dark and weird, and gloriously good fun.
