RIPPERS, THE: Why Should I Care About You?: CD

Dunno if this is the same band I reviewed for Flipside way back when, but if it is, it seems they’ve given up seeking stardom in the ‘77 punk camp and have instead opted to go for something that occasionally sounds like a punked-up early Yardbirds. An admittedly weak description, I know, and one based on the lack of fuzz in the guitars, but that’s what comes to mind, and it’s not exactly a bad thing.
