Double Doe Eyes
'Local trio Kled celebrate the release of Double Doe Eyes tonight. On this 21-track disc, they muck around in that sloppy area where punk, metal, and trashy hard rock converge, give one another wedgies, and then Sharpie cock and balls on one another's torsos. Ordinarily, this sort of heavy-handed goonery ain't my bag, but there's something about Kled guitarist Pat Phlymm's propensity for f***ed-up clangor and strafing riffs that lifts the band out of the typical punk-metal-hard-rock morass. (His constipated Les Claypool-esque grunt, not so much.) And odds are these guys are also Frank Zappa fans, as they're accomplished players with a fondness for wacky subject matter, dubious stage attire, and kee-razily frantic dynamics. But all annoyances are forgiven for titling their best song 'Damo Suzuki.'' - Dave Segal, The Stranger 'Oh man, there is some nutty shit on this disk!' -- Lee, drummer for Virus Invaders 2.0 'You're... kinda funny but you also have great musical skill. You guys really are tight!' -- Nancy Guppy, host of Seattle Channel's 'Art Zone' 'Kled (is) like a giant pair of rock forceps stretching our inner walls until we scream.' -- JJ, Blue Moon Tavern booker 'Kled... play heavy metal disco pushed to every corner weirdness by Phlymm's disconcertingly childlike vocals.' -- The Missoula Independent Kled presents: Double Doe Eyes. Basic tracks recorded live in studio at Titan Recording Studios in Seattle in June of 2010. This record represents the old and new Kled catalogue spanning Kled's 10 years in Seattle. This batch of pretty songs is a mixed bag, both stylistically and in mood. But definitely a heart-full of Rock. It is great for your dining and dancing pleasure as well as for headbanging the crap out of your parents.
