BEATEN HEARTS: Red Line Gurls: 7”

Don’t know diddlysquat about these guys but this ain’t half-bad. Sort of a Ramonesy/Johnny Thundersish thing goin’ on. “(This Is) How It Ends” is a fine little garage rock ballad. (Well, it’s ballad-ish, anyhow. Balladesque maybe. Yeah, that sounds professional….) Still think that only Big Star is allowed to spell girls like “gurls,” but that’s just me.
