Album Review: Black Helicopter - 'Don't Fuck With The Apocalypse' (Ecstatic Peace)

Nods to Pavement on this album are unlikely to spare the wrath of the Almighty

Album Review: Black Helicopter - 'Don't Fuck With The Apocalypse' (Ecstatic Peace)

7 / 10 Let us bow our heads in silent prayer for the souls of Black Helicopter. For, upon the Day Of Judgement they shall discover what punishment the Almighty reserves for those who dare mock that fun bit of His career where He gets to send down the pestilent doom of the Book of Revelation. Being on Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! label and peddling decent Pavement-esque scuzz on tracks like ‘Copout’, or the bassy, ramshackle rumble of ‘Pickle Jar’ are unlikely to be enough to spare His wrath at the taunting temerity of this album’s title, not to mention the wacky artwork of a cartoon Jesus and a nuclear explosion. Amen.
