FLESHTONES: Brooklyn Sound Solution: CD

Jul 14, 2011

Goddamn, this band just keeps going, and I mean that in a good way. They’ve been around since 1976 and have been busy every year since. Twelve songs in just under thirty minutes. Featuring Lenny Kaye, y’know, the Nuggets guy, and recorded by Ivan Julian (Richard Hell And The Voidoids). Most of the songs are instrumentals (seven out of twelve). presumably to showcase Kaye’s guitar. Highlight for your next party mix should be “I Can’t Hide It.” Kids today need to know The Fleshtones!
