OVERNIGHT LOWS: City of Rotten Eyes: CD

Overnight Lows are one of those bands that could hold their own at pretty much any punk show you throw their way. The tunes here are filled with the kind of choice chord progressions to please yer average Dangerhouse Records fan, the raw sound that’ll keep the Rip Off heads happy, and a vitriolic delivery that virtually guarantees they’d more than hold their own on a bill with the Regulations or yer average straight-ahead hardcore band. Songs are to the point with little in the way of frills or extraneous bullshit, just stripped-down, pissed-off punk rock with catchy hooks up the wazoo. A doozy, this is.
