Duo’s are nothing new to rock and roll. Identical twins playing minute long avant garde punk inspired sonic paroxysms that defy all attempts at classification and shun guitar in favor of bass though . . . The Garden evoke the bass heavy grooves of the minutemen, the simple brilliance of the Urinals, and the aggressive momentum of Lightning Bolt, if all three were pumped through the cavernous halls of a haunted house on a stormy night. Wyatt & Fletcher Shears have created something with the Garden that demands attention and holds it long after the music has stopped, like a ghostly presence that makes the hair on the back of your neck bristle and your ass shake at the same time.
