Released:2000
Tracks:Arooga! Arooga!

Mr Hooper
Rating:1.5/5

Alrighty is the first release for Perthís Jed Whitey, who play a mix between fuzzed out stoner rock and hard hitting slug rock. Iíve heard the band being compared to a cross between Fu Manchu and Electric Frankenstein, which is pretty accurate. Unfortunately, the sound on this record is atrocious and sounds like it was recorded in a toilet. (I suppose thatís what you get if you literally only spend $20 on recording...) This means that no matter how good the songs are, they sound shit anyway, which is a real shame because there are some good songs, especially Arooga! Arooga! and Poindexter Quigley. Luckily Iíve seen the band live and know how powerful they can be. Itís a pity that Alrighty bares no resemblance to this
