JACKHAMMERS, THE: Self-titled: 7”

Garage punk from the Highlands of Scotland. Surprisingly, for the genre, the four tracks have a pretty good production to them although the drum is a tad weak for my liking. However, the vocals are much more in line with what I’d expected—i.e. quite scuzzy and mildly deranged. I’d put The Jackhammers down as a cross between Ramones, Dead Boys, and The Dwarves.
