The Stranger on Snow Bud – 10 February 2011

Snow Bud and the Flower People, Remedios the Beauty, Green Handshake, Keith Cook

(Funhouse) You’ve gotta have old-fashioned, Monster Squad–style Wolfman ‘nads to name a song “Bong Hit,” especially if you go the full distance by starting the song with a bubbling sound effect and ensuring the lyrics are entirely about doing hits from a bong (“Bong hit/It’s the shit”) without even making the most perfunctory gestures toward a high-minded metaphor or two. But Snow Bud and the Flower People have ‘nads to spare; they’re as subtle as a Cheech and Chong movie, but they back up all the weed talk by being a super-solid garage-rock psychedelic band. They’re like Reverend Horton Heat’s younger stoner brother, barreling out of the garage to bring weed and hot licks to the people. PAUL CONSTANT
