Discovery: The Spicy Draculas - Greed Is The Mother of Necessity

The Spicy Draculas are made up of three deranged Manhattan youths who go by the names Harry Cola, Justin Tyme and Dr. Montgomery Sippywatchkins, the most unusual and confusing band since Gwar. If you've seen The Spicy Draculas before you'll know of their on-stage antics. Most of you will be new to this highly charismatic and satirical trio. Drummer Cola eats three cheeseburgers from McDonalds during their set, a tradition he compares to: "The Christmas ham." The trio talk in their own tongue called 'Draculasnationese', a mix of German and Transylvanian. They cross the boundaries of contemporary with their unconventional physical presence, but also create post-hardcore / experimental rock music.

"Greed Is The Mother of Necessity" is the best track from their second self-released album Fermenting Insurrection, the 10th Spicy Draculas release in total. Some discography standouts include last year’s Sandra EP, an ode to the hurricane that hit the East coast's shoreline in November. This release also featured a more than acceptable cover of The Flaming Lips' "Goin On". "Greed Is The Mother of Necessity" is a simplistic power chord heavy punk track with lo-fi aesthetics. It's not a bad track in the slightest, it just lacks that refinement modern punk artists like Iceage have. Vocalist Justin Tyme is actually pretty good at singing, as he announces: "Turn the box of channels on; sounds like it's playing you're favourite song. And if you think you've had enough, no surprise you can't turn it off. It goes "Your attention please, Buy me, oh buy me" It's not about what you need, It's what you want." These are better than average lyrics and work with the trio's rebel for a cause persona of defying the norm. Other tracks on Fermenting Insurrection include anti-George Bush songs and satirical creative covers of Green Day and Bomb The Music Industry!

The Spicy Draculas haven’t nailed their sound just yet, but it doesn’t seem like they want (or even need) to. Their live set is clearly the calling card and without their strange antics they wouldn't have the same appeal, clearly. Possibly they can refine their studio work and tone down the guitar distortion just a tad, leaving the listener in a more comfortable position. It seems however, that The Spicy Draculas want to put as much pressure on their audiences as humanly possible.
