Rating:

Mark Sultan is better known for his work in the Spaceshits, Les Sexareenos, BBQ, Almighty Defenders and others, but he recently released his own album ‘$’, and it definitely makes the grade.

It’s from the opening moments Sultan lets his weirdness fly. ‘Icicles’ opens with mechanical strum and guitar screeching before a solo cuts through the middle of it. Three minutes in and the drums are thudding underneath a buzzing drone, the clockwork tempo cranking up and his vocals finally come in. It culminates in a frazzled guitar solo before collapsing a full six and a half minutes after it began. It’s a dramatic, attention-grabbing opener that kicks up a gear into ‘Don’t Look Back’, taking the more traditional Sultan sound and cranking it up over rattling junkyard percussion. The solo band sound is well and truly ditched, especially when the track erupts full-on halfway through.
