The recording is short and to the point, with six meaty tracks for those who like their music with a kick. The driving opener, "Tourettes Guy, has a heavy bass riff, spastic solos, and sampled expletives from an irate dude on the edge. Sabin has jazz associations with bassists Harvie S(wartz) and Michael Formanek, and he plays an acoustic upright throughout the recording, pursuing both rock and jazz aesthetics.
On the title piece, Sabin opens with a woody bass solo, flexing as he leads the band into a few tempo changes with frenzied and skilled solos. Rigby's fluid clarinet and sax work on "Bob Takes a Nap and Griffin's intricate drumming throughout are both full of freedom. Stanley's guitar playing is exhilarating, bringing tripped-out distortion and effects to the groovy melody of "From the Underground and echo chorus sounds to "Red and Black.
Killdozer is as much substance as attitude. How else can you account for the wild cover of the James Bond theme song "Nobody Does It Better, from the movie The Spy Who Loved Me? It totally rocks.
