HONEYCHAIN: Crushed: CD

If you have ever wondered what it would be like if Debbie Harry sang for The Muffs, then wonder no more as L.A.’s Honeychain has nailed that sound on the head, especially on the opening track “Bombs Away.” It’s actually ex-Nushu member Hillary Burton taking on vocal and guitar duties in the three piece and additionally writing lyrics which would easily fit in many songs by The Muffs. It’s no coincidence then to discover that The Muffs’ Kim Shattuck produced Crushed and that she and Burton are both in the current lineup of Shattuck’s other band, The Pandoras. If Flipside was still around today, I’m certain that Honeychain would be featuring heavily in its pages. I love it! –Rich Cocksedge (Self-released, honeychainmusic@gmail.com, honeychainmusic.com)
