It might be almost forty years since the Stooges covered the world in their dirgey garage punk, but Tyvek seem hell bent on keeping that famous Detroit tradition going. Their second album “Nothing Fits” is as uncompromising and unrefined as they come, with twelve songs that all sound like fists being slammed hard against concrete walls. Eight of the tracks don’t make it past two minutes, but each is ferocious and packed with a scary amount of aggression. It’s hard to love and the production is so minimal that it’s like being hit by a battering ram constantly.

Tyvek are cut straight from the same cloth as the bands who lined up alongside Iggy and the boys, with MC5 and Patti Smith’s taste for the raucous spread throughout this album. Hard to love, but difficult to ignore.
