Human Eye at the Summit

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Like any good Detroit rocker, Timmy Vulgar loves him some Stooges. And like many of his Motor City brethren, Vulgar's music lives in the proto-punk giants' dark and dingy shadow.

Vulgar's former project Clone Defects socked it to listeners with the fist-to-face swagger of The Stooges circa "Raw Power." Human Eye is where Vulgar imbibes and expels the back alley disorientation of Iggy and company's "Fun House" days. It's strung-out and harshly abrasive but also a little groovy, as if some warped echoes of Motown seeped into Vulgar's gnarly history lesson.

In other words, he's just what The Summit ordered.
