Here are two new Quilty tracks based on Charles Burns' teenage sex-and-horror graphic novel 'Black Hole.' Side A, "Lizard Queen," is a rollicking, libidinous chugger about "the bug," a sexually transmitted disease that causes its victims to develop bizarre physical mutations. Side B, "Chris on the Beach," is a loose, fuzzy send-off to a murdered lover that ebbs softly over jammy, hazy guitars. It's a little more sentimental than the first, but certainly no less grotesque, sleazy or gory (and we wouldn't have it any other way).
Special thanks to Carlos Hernandez and Chuck Wilson.
