HUNCHES: “You’ll Never Get Away with My Heart” b/w “Like I Could Die”: 7”

This band was big news a decade or so ago when In The Red Records was all the rage. It’s swaggering, ugly garage punk taking cues from NY bands of the late-’70s and Jay Reatard-style blowouts. This disc is their first demo and is a more innocent take on their influences. The A side sounds like the Reigning Sound. The flip sounds like a strangled Radio Birdman. Really worthy disc that surprised the hell out of me and is getting repeated turns on the player.
