New Zealand ghoul punks The Cavemen returned with two tracks from their particular brand of theatrical faster-and-louder Rock ‘n Roll, including the “Am I A Monster?”. And – while the results are solid, with nothing feeling particularly evolved from last year’s EP Euthanise Me – they say that “that’s not really the point with (our) music designed to hit hard and as to-the-point as possible.”

And really, there’s something charming – if that word can be aptly used here at all – about the band’s preoccupation with writing “monstrous” tunes, as they focus on “less cracking wise and more cracking of skulls”.

The Cavemen – self-confessed to be about “Kill. Fuck. Die.” – is composed of “four delinquent cretins were brought together by dumb luck and a shared love of Rock ‘n Roll.” Self-deprecating, they added that “they learned three chords and started busting our face melting music.”

Members include: Paul Cavemen (vocals), Jack Caveman (guitar, vocals), Nick Cavemen (bass), and Jake cavemen (drums).

Quoted by Dirty Water Records London, NZ garage rocker Andrew Tolley once said of The Cavemen: “Like voodoo possessed savages acting out their weekly rituals, these young cats bring a new kinda wildness to the Auckland scene. Fueled by an obsessive passion for wild and fuzzy 50s/60s garage… their commitment to their frenzied live show is unmatched in local circles… outta the blocks like rabid dogs, they swing heartily like cavemen clubs and wail wickedly like the teenage Stone Age psychos they are…”
