HYDEOUTS, THE: Creeps at Night: 7″ EP

Immediately, this yellow vinyl EP had my head bumping and toes thumping to some good ole’ rock’n’roll anthems. These four songs have a comic Halloween death plot vibe to them. I closed my eyes and could picture the Addams Family getting down to this music. Side B hits a little grittier than Side A, with tracks “The Creeps at Night” and “The Points.” Both songs include self-indulgent guitar solos, the type that seem to poke fun at self-indulgent guitar solos. What Rob Zombie does for the metal heads, The Hydeouts do for good old fashion rock’n’rollers, and I love it.
