“Oh man, the Flesh Lights are awesome!” “What? Gross. You use those things?” “Uh… I meant the garage rock band.” So the conversation has gone, I’m sure, a few times as this band rises in infamy. They’ve put a very distinct handicap on themselves by creating a name that turns away the weak at heart and makes it hard to justify buying a T-shirt at their shows. A name like the Flesh Lights demands that your band has a hell of punch to your rock. Is it any surprise that they actually deliver? Struts like protopunk, soars like hardcore. Kind of like if the Adolescents tried to play something like Reigning Sound. Highly Recommended.
