DOWN WITH PEOPLE: Self-titled: 7”

Retro psychedelic guitar rock from this Seattle three piece, led by Ron Nine who fronted Love Battery. The first side is some gritty, heavy, yet tuneful rock with more than ample wah wah pedal use that manages to get its hooks into you a couple minutes in with its trance-inducing chorus and clever bridge. The other side is a fairly pedestrian cover of “Meloncholia” by The Who that just made me wish they had put another original song on the B side.
