NEIGHBORHOOD BRATS: Self-titled: CD

Jul 21, 2011

Ex-member of the Orphans transplants to the Bay Area and starts a band that’s pretty damn good. Think of the Avengers mixed with early Legal Weapon. Charged-up early California punk style that has enough edge and attitude not to sound like a nostalgia act. Five songs that rage without any moment spared for downtime. I find the song “Lurking the Loin” near and dear. I used to live there and remember well the businessmen and out-of-towners lurking the streets for prostitutes. “Fast & Loose” has a riff similar to “Ghost Rider,” by the way. I expect there is more coming from these guys soon?
