JERKS, THE: “Cool” b/w “Cruisin”’: 7”

Mar 29, 2016

The Jerks “Get Your Woofing Dogs off Me” single is another of those KBD collector classics that has been reissued over the years. This recent reissue of their second single is as urgent a grab if you’re into ‘77. “Cool” has the mechanical ‘60s snare slap of early trash rock. “Cruisin’” is a great reaction song to someone who promised to write and never did. They are both mid-tempo snotty. Essential if you’re into KBD.
