FOUR EASY PIECES: Birth of the Uncool: CD

Jul 07, 2006

Two things: 1) their press stuff says they are influenced by Johnny Thunders, The Kinks, and all the other usual suspects, but their output is more ass-kick than rehash; 2) I think the album title, while obviously a piss-take on Miles Davis’ Birth of the Cool, is a bit of a misnomer, as the shit their peddlin’ is plenty cool. High-octane punk rock that doesn’t sound like yet another Thunders tribute band is what you get here, and they can easily rock with the best of ‘em.
