INVERSIONS, THE: Hung by the Phone b/w Domestic Disturbance: 7″

What else would you expect from Rapid Pulse? Fast rock and roll punk with influences from the Dead Boys to the Rip Offs on these two 45s! “Hung by the Phone” is the better of the two. The lead song sounds like a forgotten ‘70s punk hit! The B-side has one catchy song and another not as catchy song – but with handclaps! Coming in second place, “Domestic Disturbance” is still good, and reminds me of Wisconsin’s own Catholic Boys at times. Plus, both records have a super minimal old school layout – just black with some neon stripes. Punk! This is Fruit Loops. Sure, Fruit Loops/RNR Punk has been around forever, but they’re still, uh, yummy!
