POOKIE AND THE POODLEZ: The Last Thing I Did As a Teenager: LP

This sounds a lot like Hunx And His Punx. I’m not going to risk looking stupid by telling you if these are the same people or not, because I don’t know. If you think that makes me out of touch, then I’m somehow punker than you because of it. Based on this record, I’m into it. This Pookie And The Poodlez record has snot melody, it’s poorly recorded, and I love that guy’s voice. It’s sarcastic and silly. Plus loads of the songs have that Nobunny attention to classic rock’n’roll with “oohs” and “ahhs” and “babys.” If or not it’s the same people, they’re churning out quality, in my opinion. I’m out of touch with the pedigree of Oakland musicians, but if you like that stuff, you’ll like this. If you don’t, you won’t.
