Steel Pole Bath Tub "TULIP" reissue

20.00

Steel Pole Bath Tub blended post-punk, metal, narcotics and monster movies into a chaotic aural assault. The San Francisco trio by way of Bozeman, Montana, were among the most respected noise rock bands of the ‘90s.


Tulip is Steel Pole Bath Tub at their best. A twisted noir detective story on a bad acid trip, it’s sonically unrelenting, filled with foreboding and it unfolds over repeated listens.  There is darkness here.  A psychedelic juggernaut of careening guitar slammed up against a wall of brutal bass and punctuated by the bash and crash of toms and cymbals all with an eerie soundscape exploded over the top.  This transcendent noise was on Steve Albini’s “A List” in 1991 and it still feels fresh and avant.
