Obnox is the solo garage rock project of Cleveland’s Lamont “Bim” Thomas, the renowned post-punk drummer who made his mark playing in an array of bands including the Bassholes, This Moment In Black History, Puffy Areolas, and the Unholy Two. Thomas’ active band life is matched with his vast amount of solo releases. This year alone he’s released the crushing Boogalou Reed and the concept album Know America under the Obnox banner, and now he’s churning out yet another full length this fall titled Wiglet. Thomas spoke with Noisey about finishing the record at the beginning of the year, declaring it his best and proclaiming that it will be dark and angry but still catchy. The first single “Look To The Sun” is a fuzzy and guitar screeching experience, with vocals as murky as ever. It rips through you and drives a bluesy force through all the chaos. Listen below.
Wiglet is out 10/6 via Ever/Never Records.
