Approved Theft: The Rain Bonnets, autopaint EP

Post Author:

A free EP by a super super-secret group from Easter Island?

My grandma had rain bonnets and scarves for days, rest her soul, so I totally understand the rain bonnets' purpose. I also bet the person who invented the rain bonnet is probably still living large with a personal island. And if you've ever served food, you know: the minute a rain bonnet walks into the restuarant, it's time to serve up some hot tea. The last thing on your mind is minimalist 70's punk from a group claiming Easter Island as a home base.

The Rain Bonnets sound like a time capsule released. Finding information on this super-secret project is like learning where those giant Easter Island stone heads orginated. Actually, I would not be surprised if this was recorded by stone statues. It's heavy, unforgiving punk that sounds like it was played by basalt hands.
