JOLTS, THE: Hammer Every Nail: 7”

This a record for people who don’t have enough John Reis in their life. Maybe you wished you still lived in the heyday of Rocket From The Crypt? Or maybe you forgot there was a Night Marchers record last year already? Well, the Jolts are here to deliver their comparable brand of punk and roll. Sometimes it sounds too much like Kiss for my liking, but overall it’s pretty okay. This 7” is pretty weak, all told, especially the title track, but I had to make sure and checked out their LP, which had more impressive songwriting than this release. Grade: C+.
