DOGHOUSE SWINE: Fearless: CD

Dirty, bluesy punk’n’roll. No bueno. Ridiculously cheesy songwriting with all of those old street punk hooks that got boring the second time you heard them. “Melody” that barely shifts notes: verse to chorus to verse then, inevitably, an incredibly predictable guitar solo. The musicianship isn’t bad, but I’m completely uninterested in listening to a weaker, less intense version of Zeke. Grade: D.
