CONNIPTION FITTS: Shart Sandwich: 7″

Some ripping, lo-fi rock and roll here, but not the big hair and tight pants rock and roll played by wanna-be Sunset Strip assholes, but more the workaday, beer-drinking good time tuneage of the Dragons. The Conniption Fitts hit all of the right rock and roll marks without sounding cartoonish or cliché. Blown-out vocals with well-timed screams, tasteful guitar solos played through fuzzed-out speakers, Conniption Fitts sound like a beefier David Johanssen playing front man duties with Malcolm Young marshaling the pummeling freight train of a rhythm section. Comes highly recommended, also comes on a grey marble slab of vinyl.
