BROWN BOTTLE FLU: Felt Up: CD

Three-to-four chord co-ed garage from Indiana that sounds more or less like the Statics, were that band’s residual Ramones-isms replaced by a sort of candy blues bent. I like the faster stuff better than the miscellaneous attempts at down ‘n’ dirtyism, but on the whole it’s all kinda cool. Best of all, you can download it for free on the band’s bandcamp site, and it’s worth at least double that! BEST SONG: “Your Back” BEST SONG TITLE: “Boots on the Ground” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: This band comes right before Brownsville Station on my computer!
