BLACK CHEERS, THE: Sick Gun: CD

Third release from this Boston band and it’s a corker with raunchy guitars, sleazy bass runs, pounding drums, and vocals that sound soaked in whiskey (not the cheap stuff either). “Inside Out” slashes and burns, while “Take My Head” is a full-tilt anthem. You will be hooked before that song is even over. Rock solid and a must-have for your collection.
