Surprise, surprise: Fatal Flying Guilloteens are making some noise. Pitchfork reports today that the Houston splatter-punk heroes, who recently put former Octopus Project arm and current Bring Back the Guns triggerman Erik Bogle on the guitarist chopping block, have a new album set to go October 16 on New York’s Frenchkiss Records. These masters of eternal subtlety have titled their new creation Quantum Fucking, because… well, who knows, but it’s lonely on the road, OK? Songs like “The First Act of Violence,” “Illegal Weapons Party” and “Long Distance Reach Around” don’t call for all that much analysis, though they seem to have also cultivated an interest in zoology: “Reveal the Rats,” “Great Apes,” “Tiger vs. Gator,” “Legion of Serpents.” Houston gets the Guilloteens all to itself Halloween night at Proletariat, but if you can’t wait that long, they swoop into Austin and Denton next Saturday and Sunday with Chicago thunderers Pelican. – Chris Gray
