CRAZY SQUEEZE, THE: Self-titled: LP

This “super group” features The Stitches’ Johnny Witmer, Teenage Frames’ Frankie Delmane, Richmond Sluts’ Chris B., and Superbees’ Johnny Sleeper. Does it come off as a bunch of underground stars just fucking around, or does it work as a genuine, rocking effort? Fortunately for fans of their prior bands, it’s the latter. These guys deliver the goods, mixing in the best aspects of early glam punk, ‘77 styles, and tributes to the members’ own prior recorded efforts. The colored vinyl from Vinyl Dog looks as great as it sounds. I don’t know if it’s appropriate to call something this sleazy a “class act,” but that’s precisely what it is.
