MAKERS, THE: Everybody Rise: CD

A good record. The Makers maintain their mod-infused rock’n’roll but they’ve injected a bit of glam and psychedelics into the mix. They need to be careful lest they turn supremely wussified like the Lemonheads did; they seem to be bordering on wanting to skip barefoot through the park. There are moments that sound like those really cheesy Rolling Stones songs from the late ‘70s, but this record rocks well enough and often enough for me to gladly affix my stamp of approval.
