The lead-off track to Total Slacker's Thrashin is a live favorite, one that's resulted in at least a few guitar-smash casualties and many treatments of the Long Jam. As the opener for their debut LP, which is seeing release on vinyl and CD in the UK from Marshall Tellar and in Japan on cassette from Sixteen Tambourines, the trio dialed down the run-time without latching down the hinges — “Psychic Mesa” remains a smashing opening to the obliterative prowess that is Total Slacker's first long playing release.
The band's playing the last ever show at Monster Island on September 30 with Royal Baths and Quilt.
