"After quick-burning runs in the Monarques and Dynamiters, former Selby Tigers co-leader Nathan Grumdahl sounds a little more settled in his new fuzzed-out rockabilly/surf-punk duo the Bombay Sweets, which he started with standup drummer Jeff Brown after finding a 1950s-era DuKane reel-to-reel recorder. The duo celebrates its Cramps-fiery, Zombies-hazy, six-song EP Saturday at the Turf Club. The Bombay Sweets disc is as striking visually as it is musically: Local poster maestros Aesthetic Apparatus did the artwork, and the United Records pressing plant in Nashville (which also handles Jack White's Third Man label) churned out a special one-sided, two-colored vinyl edition that looks like a 12-inch-round piece of candescent taffy. The idea, Grumdahl reports, was to "make you want to lick it." Only the record's guitar licks taste good, however." [Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune August 2011]
