GRISWALDS, THE: Beyond the Television Scream: CD

So the three dudes on the front are in leather jackets, t-shirts, sneakers, and one has a baseball cap on his coconut. Hmmm… might they sound like the Queers? Upon consultation, they do in fact sound just like that. They even have an homage of sorts in their “High School Psychopath Pt. 3,” which is introduced on record by none other than Joe Queer himself. So, what you see on the cover is what you get, and the Griswalds don’t disappoint in that regard, even if musically they don’t have quite the intriguing hooks that the Queers do/did. Yet I will always want this band to be named the Clark W. Griswolds.
