Over the course of three LPs and a number of EPs, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer has continuously depended his approach to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage brings the listener up to TOBACCO’s speed as he widens a jagged swath through his own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of
contributing to some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state.
There were notable breaks en route to TOBACCO in the present a commission to remix White Zombie’s Thunder Kiss 65, a new Black Moth Super Rainbow record entitled COBRA JUICY, and producing Demon Queen’s EXORCISE TAPE with vocalist Zackey Force Funk. All these experiences no doubt played a role in TOBACCO’s progression. You can hear disembodied bits of Boards of Canada, early Def Jam records, and Gary Numan, or maybe just public-access TV and bad VHS dubs of 80’s horror flicks. Or the sun exploding and everything you’ve ever loved melting away. At the end of the day, TOBACCO’s just trying to make meditation music.
Since 2011, the retro-minded, punk-leaning lot have used a mix of skuzzy guitars, horns and a dirty organ to wage a two-front war on the music world: on the road, where they’ve spent relentlessly hitting both coasts with like-minded acts like Dallas’ Sealion, and at home, where War Party has been named “Best Punk Band” by the Fort Worth Weekly, and where members of the band have helped foster Fort Worth’s emerging DIY scene through the Lo-Life Recordings label they founded and the Dreamy Life Records brick-and-mortar shop they help run.
In 2015, War Party's "Teenager on Drugs" single was released in a 7" boxset also featuring Texas' own John Wesley Coleman through Windian Records, that saw the band significantly pumping up the Dion & The Belmonts portion of its patented brand of “don’t-wop” – though not at the expense of some of its rougher edges."
