ACTION SWINGERS: Self-titled: CD

Trashy, sludgy gutter rock with big guitars and snarling vocals—what else would you expect from a band comprised of members of Unsane, Pussy Galore, Sonic Youth, and Chrome Cranks? As evidenced on this reissue of their first album, these guys took the best of ‘60s lo-fi, no wave, punk rock, and Stoogified rock’n’roll and just fucked ’em all up in the best of ways. This is definitely some mandatory listening for your next garden party.
