HUNX AND HIS PUNX: Too Young to Be in Love: CD

Jul 18, 2011

Punk mixed with ‘50s/’60s teenage girl rock/pop with a Queercore twist. I would like to hear them sing about Johnny’s car getting stuck on the train tracks and there’s nothing left for them to do but mourn his loss (they come close on “Lovers Lane”). At least that’s what I think of when I hear this. Apparently, this is the first time Hunx has an all-girl band backing him up. Whoa! I love the sassy and confident vocal delivery. Especially on “If You’re Not Here (I Don’t Know Where You Are).” Shannon Shaw’s vocals are awesome on here as well. Is there a solo project from her in the future? Should there be? I think so. Anyway... There’s a lot of good stuff on this album—”The Curse of Being Young,” “Bad Boy,” and “Can We Get Together” are just a few. This would be the music on the stereo at the parties I would think are worth attending.
