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.

I  like when punk still has that homemade feel, if things are too polished it can lose the raw sound that can only happen in one take under less than perfect conditions. Like those home recordings on a four track in the bedroom, if you try to artificially recreate that feel you’ll immediately know it. Something will be different. You can hear it right away with the X-Rays, these guys pulled themselves together just long enough to write a single with alcohol fueling the subject matter and recording session.

If you bought issue #377 of MRR you know that they reviewed all of our last 4 releases at once.  So, we will put them up here, one for each day.

First off is the NV's with Trust Fun Suicide EP

This EP gives us 3 songs of tried and true garage punk.  Poppy, fast, melodic, and sharp.  Just like your favorite MUFFS song.  These guys don't give you anything new; you've probably heard bands play songs just like these ones many times before.  But I don't think this is the kind of music meant for someone looking for something new.  It's meant for people that already know what they want and they want more of it!  And if you are looking for catchy pub-punk with attitude this will be something you like.

Best Freeby of the Week and Best Demo - Jan 14th


Best Freeby of the week:

Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb tee shirt - at the show on Saturday Sal gave me one of their new tee shirts and it's sweet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Demo of the week:

Drugs Dragons - Tony Sagger sent me a CDR for Drugs Dragons II&I/II.  I have to admit off that bat that I am not a big fan of Drugs Dragons, I was a huge fan of Sagger and Tony's solo work.  I think I am just kind of sick of the 60's psych garage rock.  Even though Drugs Dragons takes that sound to a whole other level, a weird and heavy as hell whole other level, still not my cup of tee.  What I do love about this is the time and efffort Tony puts into any of his releases, look at this CDR:

He created the packaging by hand and drew/painted the cemetary scene, and then cut out the moon and stars so the CD would shine through.  Unbeleivable!  The time it took to do this is astronomical and its cool as hell.
