Truman's Water - Fingers 6 Steps Ahead of Our Minds

I bought Spasm Smash XXXOXOX OX & Ass upon its release, not knowing anything from the San Diego band. I just was into Superchunk and Polvo. This song epitomises the album, first sprawling guitars then a huge mess, very dissonant covered by shouty lyrics. They go back to the original theme in the third part, added with speed and drums.
This will not please anyone, I am so sorry (nul point for Trumans Water). But it's bloody good fun, and it's not even on Spotify.
