Revved up punk'n'roll with wailing guitars that don't suck and snarly buncha vocals.  These are just basic drinking punk songs - so obviously don't expect a treatise on the state of humanity here - still, they play with a good level of intesity.  "Drinking for my Baby" is pretty generic tune but the bass and guitar tone is pretty rad. The last tune "Retaliate Now!" has more of a strum intro big late 80's/ early 90's grungy punk a la New Bomb Turks (who seem to be the primary influence of this band) and a bit of Mudhoney's "You Got It".  Nothing too special but not bad at the same time.

Fire Retarded - Scroggz Manor LP/CD
 
Fire Retarded is a good garage rock / punk band from Madison, WI.  One of the things I like about them is they're able to inject a healthy dose of hyper punk energy into their songs and not get bogged down by garage rock cliches.  Also, every song is catchy as fuck.  The record has a perfectly fuzzy recording that suites the whole thing perfectly.  They remind me of the kind of band you wanted to see opening up for JAY REATARD, as opposed to the fucking posers who usually opened up for him.  Go ahead and get it.  I feel like this one will really grow on me over time.

But I must say, '70's NYC punk influence is alive and well, still pulsing through the veins of SONNY VINCENT's work.  Songs "Jealousy," "Supernova," and "Corner Stone" are as good as anything the TESTORS could dish out.  Vincent's voice still as snotty and raw as it was in his twenties. Solid hooks, fast and anxious delivery - it's good.

Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb went to Jim Diamonds to record their album at the end of September and I have been listening to the roughs all weekend.  They are amazing!  Jim has recorded a masterpiece of rock n roll - punk rock!

 

Look out for the album in early 2013.
