RADIO REELERS: The Next Best Thing: CD

Nov 10, 2008

Back in the mid-‘90s, Razorcake’s own Rev. N{}rb came up with a punk rock theory that held the universe together: The Holy Trinity (Troika?)—three bands that kept the underground from falling in upon itself and creating an inescapable vortex into which all would disappear. If memory serves correctly, at one point the troika consisted of Teengenerate, the Devil Dogs, and the Rip Offs. The Radio Reelers would have fit in nicely with that group had it been a quartet (fourka?). One gets the feeling any of these guys could fall over at any time and fuck up the whole operation. Rock’n’roll played fast, loose, and all boozed up.
