Get Bent did a great review of HOLLYWOOD's next record, "Love Child"
Review: Hollywood - Love Child
Certain labels get more attention that others when it come to the garage punk scene, but we’d be amiss to not keep tabs on a record label like Big Neck Records that’s been kicking out the jams consistently for almost fifteen years now. Especially since their next release is gonna blow the doors off of everyone. If you’ve been to one of the recent Mean Jeans shows this tour, you know their openers Hollywood almost stole the show and what I mean when I say I cannot wait ‘til they release their new LP Love Child later this summer.
Hollywood plays banging dirty rock n roll full of four on the floor sneering energy. They sound like a rowdy version of Flamin Groovies played at Descendents speed. Hollywood shares that same over caffeinated pop sensibilities as Mean Jeans, White Wires and their fellow Dirtnap label mates, but it’s more informed by classic rock and primal garage riffs than their peers. “Up All Night” starts Love Child off with the perfect ode to partying that could’ve been written by any bands in the Denton, Texas scene. ”19999999999999” isn’t a Prince cover, its more like the Oblivians mashed up with Les Savy Fav. “Bedtime for Bonzo” is a bent out of shape Spits meets Riverboat Gamblers punk rock firebomb. ”Space Jam” channels the best of Crypt Records scuzz, while at the same time masquerading as a cover of a Human Eye song. “(I Prefer) Drugs” is a Ponys inspired glam soaked fist pumping anthem that’ll get the kids stealing away to the bathroom to get high. Another highlight is “Snake Bite,” a New York Dolls via electric blues Detroit rock city jam sure to play on repeat.
The songs of Love Child swerve through noisy punk, furious hopped up garage and glam inspired fuzz riffs, and it’s certainly not a LP full of the same boring power chords over and over again. Keep your eyes out for Love Child and listen to “Up All Night”
