Steel Pole Bath Tub
22 Shouts - 133,334 Scrobbles
Enigmatic noise rock trio Steel Pole Bath Tub crafted a grungy, droning, offbeat sound from a palette of fuzzed-out bass riffs, blasts of guitar feedback, and tape loops, plus a raft of alternately kitschy and disturbing dialogue samples from vintage TV shows and movies. Additionally, the band had a penchant for deconstructive covers of rock classics, some of which appeared only on 7" singles. Critics were split on the effectiveness of their often repetitive compositions, with some praising their originality and others bemoaning a lack of consistent songwriting polish.

- LyricsLeft Chicago, left the filth. Hopped a boxcar, headed south.
Lust with 13 Siamese twins. Bought for science, kept for skin.
Twenty souls touch themselves. Lord help them! I help my self.
This is my circle of instant friends.

I fell with the grace of dirt
