Punk rock is best when it's channeled through one man confronting the things that keep him awake at night. Greg King's nightmares manifest in the murky punk energy, lacerating riffs and warped field recordings of G.G. King. With the arrival of his debut LP, Esoteric Lore (Rob's House/Scavenger of Death), the former Carbonas frontman transcends the buzzsaw blitzkrieg of his previous band. By marrying crisp, driving melodies and demonic incantations with a damaged sound that could shake itself to pieces at any minute, he's created the most compelling avant-garage punk statement this town has ever known. myspace.com/ggkingband.
