MARVELOUS DARLINGS: The Swords, The Streets: 7”

Oct 02, 2008

In certain ways this reminds me of D Generation. Modern and arguably not-douchey takes on late ‘70s Thunders, a touch of glam but with the speed and sensibility of punk to keep it short. This is the second 7” of theirs that I’ve heard, and I’m not really sold. I mean, the songs are okay, but they’re nothing to howl about. I believe that someone involved with Fucked Up is in this band and it leads me to believe that that is the reason this band has more legs than it probably should with the output that I’ve heard. I’ll reserve final judgment until I see them live. Maybe that sells it.
