Combomatix: As a person who nearly majored in French, I actively sought good French music. Do you know how rare it is that I hear French music that I like? It’s rare, very rare. If I had looked at the back cover before putting this on, I would have realized that it was French; but I didn’t because of the drawings of bullshit like a semi-truck and dream catcher on the front. Anyhow, I thought I was listening to the rad-as-fuck garage rock songs on here, and I was thinking that this band was from some middle of nowhere place in the Midwest—some place devoid of all things to do besides rock out at home. Spastic yet controlled jams. Tight! White Fangs: Another pretty awesome garage rock band—this time from Belgium! Bluesy in their approach compared to the zany Combomantix, but still great.
