#52. Thee Oh Sees – ‘Sticky Hulks’ (2015)

I’m sharing this because I think this band caused me permanent hearing damage the other night. Motherfuckers.

Great live band, though. Heavy kraut grooves. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard opened up, and they’re basically Thee Oh Sees with more of a sense of humour. A great double bill, and one of those rare gigs where people care as much about one of the opening bands as they do the headliner.

I also got grabbed and nipple-crippled by a guy twice my size once Thee Oh Sees finished playing. And I’m not a small person. So that’s saying quite a bit. And, yeah, I can hear this high-pitched wail in my ears all the time right now. It’s not pleasant. Hopefully that gets better soon. Amazing show, though, featuring two of my favourite bands of the last few years.
