L’ASSASSINS: 7 pm GO!!!: 7” EP

Hot girls with nice hair and guns who are either an American version of the Del Monas or a punker version of the Del Moroccos, which begs the question of why they’re not called the Del Assassins ((which in turn begs a further question of why they wouldn’t be LES Assassins since, if my two years of high school French are still current, one’d only use “L’” before of a singular noun starting with a vowel, not a plural noun—hence “L’Assassin” is correct, but not “L’Assassins”—but, shit, whom am i kidding, they had me at “L’Ass”)). Sultry and upbeat 60’s vamp-rock; three cool songs but no great ones, which means they are one great song away from getting reviews that don’t start with the phrase “hot girls with nice hair and guns.” Turn up the fuckin’ maracas, Toots! BEST SONG: “7 PM” BEST SONG TITLE: “Backseat Bomp.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Guitarist Monet has no visible tattoos.
