W.O.C.K On Vinyl - Dkarn: Mothership / Tadpoles (1997)

Before things get too serious at Rock On Vinyl, I thought it might be fun to post a song at the end of each month, that could be considered to be either Weird, Obscure, Crazy or just plain Korny.
Here are a couple of tracks by a heavy, grunge band from Perth, Western Australia released in the late 90's.  I haven't been able to find any specific information about this band other than they are a 4 member band, two guitars, bass, drums and sampler with a unique vocal style and vocal effects. They have been together since 1997, and have had a few line up changes since. They have played at many of Perth's best original venues (eg. Grosvenor Front Room) and are planning their first interstate tour early next year to co-inside with their first release.
I came across their first independent release  "Mothership" by accident, sometime ago, and was totally blown away by its raw power and awesome riff. The vocals are well suited to the style of music and enhance the overall affect, as does the feedback and sampling.
So, this month's WOCK selection is founded on the Obscurity of this band (or at least here in Victoria they are) and I hope the boys decide to come across and tour the Eastern side of Australia real soon.
