L.A. punks Pangea had a limited but totally ravaged cassette out on Burger Records this year and for most (RSTB included) this meant that it came and went without being able to snag a copy. Thankfully Burger, in conjunction with OlFactory Records, have taken pity on the suckers and reissued this raucous chunk of fun on vinyl. Threatening to tear itself apart at every corner, Living Dummy is short on fidelity but heavy on scrappy, catchy garage punk that befits their upcomming opening dates for the likes of Mikal Cronin whose sense of kitchen sink stylistic approach the band seems well versed in. Underneath the layer of fuzz and sweat the boys fold in acoustic strums, backwards tapes, giddy background vocals and girl-group drum pops. Each spin 'round renders it more endearing and necessitates a volume bump for dancin's sake. Don't be left in the dust a second time around, pick it up!
