Toe the line between the skeeze and the sheen with Turbo Fruits at Will's Pub



Is it possible Turbo Fruits accidentally gave their album the wrong name? Instead of the raging punk tremble of previous releases, No Control is almost bizarrely even-tempered and their most polished effort to date. The Nashville garage rockers swapped “Sweet Thang” (Butter) for No Control’s sweetheart/“Favorite Girl” amid the album’s other more straightforward discussion points. Call it maturity, maybe. But if you want to say it’s a sign of selling out or mainstream label interference, guess again, because they funded the effort basically all by themselves. Think of it like the passed-out dude at the party came to and slicked up his slumbering mumbling and started enunciating his words. Could be off-putting and awkward to longtime fans seeking that old slurry sound, but their brash roots are surely not forgotten live. Let’s see how weird Will’s Pub gets toeing the line between the skeeze and the sheen. 

TURBO FRUITS with Panther Camp, Sol Cat, the Plush Monsters, Dumber Bunnies 8 p.m. Friday, June 5 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | | $10-$12
