Shortly after acclaimed New York noise trio Unsane ditched camp at the end of 1999, Dave Curran, along with the assistance of former Kill Van Kull and Glazed Baby members, founded the J.J. Paradise Players Club. No surprise, then, that this outfit borrows sonically from the parent bands -- particularly Unsane, and especially the propensity for volume at all costs. Curran, who wielded bass with his previous band, does precisely the same here, with a damaging low-end attack. Wine Cooler Blowout is a rhythmically dense album, utilizing the massive, wall of sound approach favored by the majority of noise rock outfits, as well a wash of damaging guitar (not unlike the Entombed -- at least on their later material). Though there is tremendous collective experience among this quartet, being seasoned tour veterans of the underground circuit, Wine Cooler Blowout, like its EP predecessor, is a fairly average affair. Sure, the rhythm section work together seamlessly, and that is the most salient quality of these songs, but the riffs are tepid.

These guys kick butt. I saw them live In seattle, And they completeley rocked. The new e.p. "clean" is amazing, I think they really hit their stride now, but this album is great too. Just crank it and peel out!!
