Another Bruise Rises From The Cruise

The amazing idea that was the Bruise Cruise - a floating festival from Florida to the Bahamas with the likes of Thee Oh Sees, Black Lips and Ty Segall on board - went off without a hitch last month. The group behind it (including cruise director Ian Svenonius, the guy behind The Nation Of Ulysses and Chain and the Gang) put out a 7" split with most of the bands getting involved. The first one had Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees (read our review here), and Ive just got my sweaty palms on the second volume. This one is split between Jacuzzi Boys and Vivian Girls - Boys and Girls, hand in hand - and it is just as killer. 'Your Flags' is Jacuzzi Boys at their... The other volumes include Turbo Bats and Quintron & The Pussycat, and Black Lips w/ The Strange Boys (although their contribution, 'American Radio', we have already covered as it is on a separate release with Natural Child).
