NEW YORK WANNABES: Loud and Proud: 12”

With this band name and the record titled Loud and Proud, I thought for sure this was going to be bad NYHC. I’m glad to say that I was very wrong! While this formula has been done before, not often does a band get it right like New York Wannabes have here. The band is a two-piece, male and female garage rock band from Germany that worship at the altar of Lux and Ivy. Musically, they play fucked up blues rock’n’roll, from the heart, without an ounce of pretentiousness. Anyone who is into primitive garage rock like Oblivians or the Gories should seek this out!
