“Peerless outsider rock, flawless programming, what can we say? Reissue of the year, hands-down!” – Volcanic Tongue

Nicodemus and Matchez are Detroit’s undisputed masters of biker-synth-folk-psych and Toxic Crunch is perhaps their definitive recording. Released in 1999 on cassette on their own Zedikiah label, the legendary duo is in fine form – Matchez’ classic Rat Bros studio production sounds like no other and St. Nic’s gravelly pipes rival Dr. John and Beefheart on funky fucked odes to livin’ free, escaping the electric chair and the joys of morning wood.
