LEE AND THE LIARS: Tofu Rock Tofu Roll: CD

Jul 29, 2013

Sonically, this is trash rock with a loose delivery and the usual production qualities. The rub, though, lies in the songwriting: instead of the usual Sonics-via-Mummies ‘60s route, these kids dig a decade back from the pack, pilfering from ‘50s doo wop and pop, and even include a cover of the Del-Vikings’ “Come Go with Me.” Can’t say I was bowled over by it, but it was nice to hear something a wee bit of the beaten track.
