ONIONS, THE: “Alien Astronaut” b/w “Till the End of the Night”: 7”

Solid 7”. As the name implies, “Alien Astronaut” has a science fiction feel to it. The track’s heavily-phased guitar and subject matter leads me to believe The Onions are big fans of the Necessary Evils. “Alien Astronaut” has a really fucking vicious vocal delivery—not quite Tomata du Plenty heavy (what is?) but not too far off either. B side is chockfull of Johnny Thunders riffs and is nearly as cool as the A side. Added bonus: cover art by Bob Scott (Mongrel Zine rules). Recommended.
