Ol’ Jim Foetus/J.G. Thirlwell strikes again, this time as Clint Ruin with former Swan Roli Mosimann for another Wiseblood effort, which finds them fusing blustery noir swing with enough sleaze to maintain an underside edge. PTTM opens with the jitterbug pummel of “Pedal To The Metal” (which could be construed as a title track-check the abbreviation), whose jazzy broadness gets exponentially magnified by the scat seaminess of the closing track, “Grease Nipples.” In between are the hip-hoppish wrenching rant of “Stop Trying To Tie Me” and the standout 9:50 “Hey Bop A Ree Bop”-a seething, creeping blues crawl where Ruin’s voice stretches from growl to screech, augmented by Dan Hovey’s eerie guitar, evoking an oppressive atmosphere Hazel Motes would feel at home in.
