Some jittery ragers that might appeal to ‘90s underground freaks. When they go for more formal rock’n’roll structures, I lose interest. But every once in a while they hit on some Action Patrol/Jonathan Fire*Eater combo—nerd angst and slant rock and the right balance of love and contempt for the pop canon—and they seem larger than themselves. That I’m into. I hope they continue on the path of “93 Lumina,” or even better, “Pest” (from their Hooker Chemical record, included in its entirety on side B). I kind of hope they change their name, too, but that’s neither here nor there.
