    LA RECORD's Chris Ziegler review for Flying Hair Haunted Hangout II

    Let’s crack open this tape, stretch it between Black Sabbath and Black Angels, and then let the sun get to work on it so it gets all gooey and bubbly and boils off in shreds. That’s the last chunk of last song “Tiny Little Man,” where synthesizer pushes its wormy fingers between the cracks a la every zombie movie that had an unhappy ending. Isn’t it nice to check out a band that believes in ‘shreds’ not just as a verb, but as a noun and eventually a destination? Flying Hair is immersed in the queasy-uneasy tension between blast-damaged nuthin-fancy stoner rock and that span of the 70s when heavy psych and creepy prog overlapped cuz they were all watching the same horror movies on the same downers, with the genre distinction coming down to whether the guitarist, the organist or the vocalist would flip out first and best. Here, they take turns. Guitar: “The Captain,” in one of the final suites. Organ: the pleasantly barren second half of “LSD Dracula.” And the vocals? Ex-Zig Zag Bobby peaks on the Harlan-Ellison-via-Kim-Fowley climax of “I wonder what the clock-keeper’s keeping … KEEPING … KEEpprojngngng…” in “Tiny Little Man.” Sometimes people release albums, sometimes they release wild things back into nature cuz they’re getting too big to control anymore—this tape is just a little more of the second than the first.

about

Flying Hair are core members Bobby Martin, Matthew Clark, and Kurt Mangum. Bobby was a founding member of Zig Zags where he both sang and played drums. Switching to bass/vocals in Flying Hair he is joined by Matthew, a previous collaborator with doom legend Wino Weinrich, on drums, and Kurt blasting effects laden guitar. Flying Hair creates heavily riffed demented jams with straight creeper vibes. They have a surprisingly catchy pop sensibility emerging from a wave of weirdness and groove. Their debut Haunted Hangout II was reissued on vinyl on cult label Casual Acid Tea based in Los Angeles, after selling out several runs of DIY cassettes. This album could aptly soundtrack a horror flick set in a smoke filled funhouse. Haunted Hangout II was mixed/produced by guitarist/tech mastermind Brian McKinley of Black Bananas/RTX. With added member Brian Fox on synthesizers, the band is finishing up their second full length album to be released in 2017.
