KAMIKAZES: Time for Rock ‘n’ Roll: 7″EP

Well all right! I’ve been waiting years to hear something new from these guys and this sure don’t disappoint. The tempo is less frantic here than on their All Night Cram Session EP, but in its place is more swagger, more balls, and more flat-out boogie. These boyos don’t so much bring the rock as take it and pummel you over the head repeatedly with it. As an added treat, they even delve into the usually dangerous land of the ballad and pull out a nugget as memorable and catchy as the Ramones’ “I Want You Around.” Enough dicking around, guys. When’s the album come out and the “world conquest” tour start?
