That being said, Madison has put its name on the map (at least in my book) with the arrival of Sleeping In The Aviary. The trio really shakes things up with their debut album Oh, This Old Thing?, which came out earlier this year and is just now making it's way into my ears. It's thirteen tracks, which run a dizzyingly fast 23 minutes, scream molten lo-fi garage rock in the vein of The Buzzcocks, albeit with the vocals ratcheted up a few notches. If you're looking for something down and dirty to turn up loud and rock out to, this is just what the doctor ordered. And you certainly won't be falling asleep to it!
