This Frankenstein’s monster of a four piece consists of members from bands, The Retainers, Cheap Time, and Welcome Home
Walker, and have spent the last four years gaining a cult like following both in and outside of their hometown. This following was finally treated to a legitimate album last October by the bands self titled debut LP.
The 10 tracks on this record offer a blast from the past by paying tribute to 60’s punk-rock with their fast paced vocal delivery, catchy guitar riffs and stripped down old school production value.
Standing out as the albums top track it’s third offering entitled “Fix It”. This song doesn’t waste time, and instead jumps right in with a high octane riff whichquickly gives way to the songs highly energetic vocals. “Fix it” trades in cliche tropes like traditional song structure and instrumental solos for quick start stop tempo changes punctuated by a medley of catchy chords and repetitive chants to drive the lyrical message home. Blink and you’ll miss it, the minute and half long song is action packed and sucks the listener in only to end just as abruptly as it begins.
Boasting their first full length record and playing it with a mission to bring back old school grimy garage rock, it’ll be interesting to watch where the twin city punk outfit goes from here.
