HUNCHES: Exit Dreams: CD

Exit Dreams is a bittersweet record: The Hunches are now defunct. Too much Peter Laughner living was the culprit here; The Hunches partied and fucked shit up like Phoenix’s Consumers. And that’s too bad because The Hunches were great. Traditional Hunches trash is found on Exit Dreams, not to mention some excellent Flowers of Romance (that’s PIL) style drumming and strong narrative on “From this Window.” In The Red Records comes through again, probably why all the indie-giant labels are pillaging Larry Hardy’s roster (LAME). Consumer Guide Rating: A+.  –ryan (In The Red)
