This demo contains four songs with a ‘77 New York feel. The songs are solid with a thoughtful change in tempo and beat. The pop hits Dead Boys speeds with “Shelly, Shelly (Don’t Break My Heart)” [Have you noticed a drop in parentheses in pop music lately? With a consequent drop in the use of brackets in pop music writing.] This influence seems evident to me particularly in the guitars. There are some great Cheetah Chrome-esque guitar runs that really drive the songs. The demo is proclaimed to be free on the Internet, so it’s worth checking out for fans of the New York crowd.
