|Thulsa Doom is the brainchild of Black Debbath member, producer, and impresario of Oslo, Norway's underground scene, Ole Andreassen. Ole handpicked the members of Thulsa', who play under aliases such as Papa Doom, Doom Perignon, and Angelov Doom, so you know to bring along your sense of humor when you place the needle on the vinyl and flop down in your favorite chair for a listen.|
Despite the band name, this has far more in common with stoner rock than doom, although lovers of the old school of riffing doom will love this as well. The music on this single sounds a lot like that to be found on their wonderful vinyl debut, 'She Fucks Me', released by Spain's Safety Pin label in 1999. This is riffing, bottom heavy rock, mixed loud, with a bit of the old sludged-out doom that fans of Spiritual Beggars or the Mushroom River Band will love. 'Sleep with Celebrity' starts things off with some great churning guitar and tongue-in-cheek lyrics. The guitar solos kick solid ass while the weird tunings keep it interesting. 'City of People' is up-tempo, with clean vocals and a heavy groove that will appeal to Dozer fans, but its dirtier, far dirtier. If Dozer were blasted on cheap speed and spent a lot of time sleeping in the subway, they might sound like this.
As you might expect, this single is over far too soon. You've hardly had time to light a bowl and its over, leaving you finding for more riffing, Thulsa' style. More, please.
