3 stars Crude and complex EP

Planets are a duo from California featuring Paul Slack on bass/guitar and Tom Crawford on drums. Information is a bit hard to find but I believe they are on hiatus at the moment. They appeared to have a small but enthusiastic fan base when they were more active a few years ago.

Certainly not for the faint of heart, Planets is non-stop adrenaline and noise, power and precision. They marry together the cerebral side of technically difficult math-rock playing with the fury and volume of hard core punk. In a sense they are similar to fellow Californians Minutemen, who were famous for being a punk band that actually had impressive chops. The difference is that Minutemen would play some catchy things with choruses and attempt to appeal a bit wider. Planets is pure jamming and no compromise here. It's a short EP but this is 12 straight minutes of shreddy good whiplash. Slack and Crawford careen from one challenging jam segment to the next with controlled abandon, thrilling listening, if a bit grey and cloudy in mood. There are no vocals but there are some sampled spoken audio effects between songs for brief respite. Four songs are listed but the EP plays like one long track. Also like the 80s punk scene it is a relatively low-fi affair and the cymbal crash is annoyingly loud. But that's my problem, not theirs. Turbo Jamz will have limited appeal at ProgArchives but it is a blast if this kind of music is your thing.
