LOADED NUNS, THE: Self-titled: CD

May 18, 2010

Once I was able to get past the truly appalling cover art, I realized there is a really good band here. Straight ahead, no-bullshit punk rock. Think The Heartbreakers with Cheetah Chrome on guest guitar. But the gritty vocals of Mayo Baltimore (who at times sounds like SOA-era Rollins) propels this band above the pretenders to the throne. Now if they could convince their labelmates The Living Wrecks to reform, I would pay at least ten bucks to see a double bill tour by these two rabble rousers.
