BEATNIK FLIES, THE: Drunk on Incense: CD

Eighties garage rock champs from DC return with a new release. Loud, fuzzy, and in your face, this record will split your eardrums. “Runnin Free” and “Blue Early Morn” are lodged in my brain. But they all rock hard. Think Dee Dee Ramone jamming with The Heartbreakers while Thunders is passed out in the hotel room and you get the idea. Cool covers of The Slickee Boys and Echo & The Bunnymen too.
