RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS: Time to Let Her Go: 7”

The second single in the series of new Riverboat Gamblers 7”s being released on End Sounds offers two songs: a new original and a cover of the Soft Boys classic “I Wanna Destroy You.” The A side is a great up-tempo punk/pop tune that could certainly stand up amongst any of the classics that the Riverboat Gamblers have pumped out over the years, while the Soft Boys cover is pretty close to the original. I’ve been a fan and friend of the Riverboat Gamblers for many years and while their sound has definitely come of age since their earliest records, this release takes me back to the same feeling as some of their most revered releases, just with a better recording.
