exclaimdotca Exclaim! news writer Gregory Adams makes his Music Monday Pick:
#GasHuffer - One Inch Masters (@EpitaphRecords, 1994)

In relation to the rest of Epitaph Records' roster circa 1994, Washington State garage rock weirdos Gas Huffer stood out like a sore thumb. The same year the quartet issued their label debut, 'One Inch Masters,' the imprint pressed iconic LPs like NOFX's 'Punk in Drublic,' Rancid's 'Let's Go,' and its biggest hit ever, the Offspring's millions-selling 'Smash.' The Huff's masterpiece may never command the same attention that trio of releases still does, nor did it come anywhere near their speedy bpm ratio, but 'One Inch Masters'' 14 songs are still as potent today as a freshly-opened drum of Esso premium crude.
In a way, the sinister surf licks laced in opener "Crooked Bird" land the same as those in the Offspring's then-ubiquitous "Come Out and Play (Keep Em Separated)," but Matt Wright's cartoonish croon skipped over gang warfare-inspecting lyrics for a more artful, albatross-indebted analogy on society's problems. Ragtag guitar bends and punky beats, meanwhile, bop behind stories about lemon-scented dishwashers ("Mr. Sudbuster"), or torch songs about organ theft ("Appendix Gone"). The balance of doom and humour is mastered throughout, closing with a bluesy bad luck tale, "Goat No Have."
Hardly noxious, it's Gas Huffer's greatest triumph, and a release that pointed to Epitaph's ever-diversifying roster over the next 20 years.
