GINO AND THE GOONS: Push Your Luck: EP

Lo-fi rock’n’roll along the lines of the Heartbreakers, just a bit more lively and sort of updated by the current wave of punk greats like Buck Biloxi (who makes an appearance here), Lumpy And The Dumpers, Black Mambas, and Sick Thoughts. The songs are mostly mid-tempo, catchy, and have a cruising around vibe to them. This isn’t the in-your-face kind of punk. More swagger and hanging out than snotty attitude. The repetitive choruses have a way of burrowing deep into your brain, for sure. A couple of listens, and you will have the choruses to the title track and “Ball Me Out” running through your mind for days.
