It’s no secret that I love this band, so naturally I think it’s pretty great that their first couple of records have been reissued, as they’re pretty much the best straight-ahead garage punk band out there. The early stuff is a wee bit more formative, and you have to dig beneath a little bit more noise to find the hooks, so if you’ve never heard the Furies, start with their first LP, Greater Than Ever. If that tire iron to the face suits you well, you’ll want to get this, too. Damn fine.
