BEEHIVE AND THE BARRACUDAS' In Dark Love is a modern day psychedelic masterpiece. I'm talking about a creaming, brainfuck of an inside joke that is more disturbing than funny. On their third record, BEEHIVE is submerged in an array of confrontational and uncomfortable frequencies. The sound is that of plastique guitars digging into an ovulating pulse of bass and synths, fueled by a percussive commotion, boy-girl tandem vocal that asks permission to penetrate. This is not pop, this is not difficult, this is not exclusively for discerning ears. Like plastic, this is for everyone...except you over there with the hacky sack! BEEHIVE proved on their nationwide tour with the HOT SNAKES that their attack is truly infectious and represents an unheard voice and attitude that is essential. In Dark Love was produced by Gar of the HOT SNAKES and is yet another masterpiece to emerge from the pyres of San Diego.

This funkadelic slice of semen-laden funk,soul freakouts kicks. Along with wanky guitars (thats a good thing)sing-along choruses and precisely the right amount of messyness to make it interesting all the songs are hot and sexed-up to sizzle. The funny thing is this band doesn't have much more recognition. Maybe thas a good thing.
