DISCONNECTS, THE / CRAZY AND THE BRAINS: Split: 7”

The Disconnects deal out three solid rock blasts of punk ‘n’ roll. Driving guitars and snotty vocals. Way fast and well done. Crazy And The Brains also have three solid punkers, including a cover of The Ramones’ “Oh Oh I Love Her So.” The only difference is Crazy And The Brains carry their melodies with a xylophone. “A xylophone?” you ask. Yes, a xylophone. And it endures well beyond the novelty. Really good instrumentation. Score one for originality. It just works. Great record all the way through. Worth whatever people are paying for seven inches these days.
